Wesley Black

entrepreneur + dreamer + builder

Wesley loves to tinker, and fancies himself a creative problem solver. The many hats he wears as CEO, etc. at First in Print afford him ample opportunities to play around with his puzzler each day.

An entrepreneur with a graphic design and web design background, but most importantly a husband and father, Wes enjoys family adventures with his wife Melanie, son Conrad, and daughter Genevieve. They love bike rides, kayaks, road trips, mountains, and hanging out on the beach.

A self-proclaimed life long learner, Wesley is passionate about building a home environment and company culture that both foster a love of learning and keen interest in self improvement. He can build a spreadsheet to manage just about anything, and considers himself a nerd with an artistic streak. Inspired by his lovely wife who was a middle school teacher for six years, he aspires to put his talents and resources to work helping inspire a love of learning in the hearts of students who need it.

This fun-loving, pretty geeky, left-handed somewhat artsy outdoorsy type fellow is also a big fan of astronomy, audiobooks, aviation, and even some things that don't begin with the letter A- such as mountain biking, running, guitar, snowboarding, and racquetball.

Kate Rose Willink

artist + designer + dreamer

Kate's destiny for design was evident. As early as 9 years old, she was designing and printing "Katie's Club" newsletters for her 3rd-grade friends. She's been challenging herself to make ideas tangible ever since.

Her knack for dreaming up and executing ideas fits in perfectly around here. She sharpened her craft earning a BA in design from Flagler College. Hungry for knowledge, she also nabbed a BFA in fine art and minors in illustration, advertising, and art history. Her curiosity has led her around the world, and continues to fuel her desire to study and explore. When she's not finding new books to read and classes to take, she's treasure hunting in intriguing shops, painting in her studio, or soaking up old-world stories.

Brenna Noel Martin

designer + illustrator + adventurer

Born and raised in a small town near Cape Canaveral, this Florida native is undeniably creative to the core. She spent her college days kickin’ it in the charming little city of Saint Augustine where she acquired a degree in graphic design and fine art from Flagler College. We love Brenna for her bright spirit, innate sense of optimism, and darling illustrated aesthetic. When she’s not busy designing up a storm, Brenna enjoys tending to her plant babies, exploring Florida's hidden gems, and planning her next big venture.
