Bill grew up in rural Bedford County, Pennsylvania, where his MacGyver-like abilities to fix and make nearly anything began to take form. After attending Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Bill began his professional career designing and building scenery for theatre. Several design firms, print shops, and cities later, Bill founded Nium, Inc., based on the concept that clients are best served by a direct, honest approach to design and production with a healthy dose of creativity, humor, and elbow grease.
Whoever said, "Don't mess with Texas" never met Sandy. Sandy's experiences as a big sister, mom, and accounting person for area design firms primed her for her multi-faceted role at Nium. On all paths, she honed her finance skills and patience for colorful personalities. When she isn't navigating through QuickBooks, chasing down timesheets, or trouble-shooting procedures, you may find Sandy helping to remove a coffee stain or sharing a coupon.
Equally proficient in digital as she is in print, Terri has been leading clients big and small through global product releases, brand development, and digital efforts for more than 16 years. She also has the development of a few iOS and Android apps in her back pocket. Terri's idea of a great night in would include the Pittsburgh Penguins on TV, vegetarian chili on the menu, and Guinness on tap.

Matt always gets the job done and whistles while he works. Really. Matt's formal training started at Ohio University's School of Art where he picked up mad skills in graphic design, advertising, and beer drinking. Throughout his career, Matt mastered the art of brand consistency across many types of media as he's worked at several in-house design departments for big brands such as Red Roof Inns and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
Andrew's key responsibilities at Nium include getting the right print pieces to the right people, right on time, managing inventory, and politely nagging designers to get their to-do lists done. Andrew's professional background includes teaching math to middle schoolers and high schoolers, which has provided him with the patience, amusing stories, and problem-solving skills to be a valuable part of Team Nium.
In addition to bringing expert knowledge of production equipment and methodology to Team Nium, Jason also brings a healthy dose of competition in the category of office singing. While he sets production plans in place, he also performs several big hair band sets each day, rivaling Matt's previous title as the best (and only) karaoke singer at Nium. You can always count on Jason to solve any production conundrum and recall any heavy metal lyrics from the eighties.
