The Lineup

The Lineup

Meet the lineup that make your projects come to life!

Scot Smith

I moved to Evergreen, CO from Kalamazoo, MI 14 years ago where I ran a similar business in the racing industry. Rocky Mountain Apparel was a 2000 sq ft shop with 4 employees when I bought the business 8 years ago. Two moves later we’re a 30 employee operation in a 12,500 sq ft building. Our main strength lies in the incredible staff here, I would put our crew up against any similar shop anywhere. To compliment this staff we’ve invested heavily in the best production equipment available in our industry. Owning Rocky Mountain Apparel has been the best work experience of my life. Please contact me with any feedback good or bad, I’d like to hear from you.

Mike Turner
General Manager

Im bringing experience, a passion for quality, and a drive to out perform expectations in my industry. What are you bringing?

In the summer of 1988 I programmed designs for embroidery, hooped and embroidered my first hat. Two years before that in 1986 was my first time cutting rubylith by hand and screen printing t-shirts.

I believe there is a recipe for success no matter the project, and it starts with knowing your customer and their expectations.

So get to know us! Tell us exactly what you expect!

Let us create your projects with our passion that out-does your expectations!

Creative Director

“Every child is born, blessed with a vivid imagination. But just as a muscle grows flabby with disuse, so does the bright imagination of a child in later years if he/she ceases to exercise”

~Walt Disney~

With over 20 years of exercising my imagination and creativity, designing is a true passion that runs through my veins and that enthusiasm bleeds into every project I am given. Combine that with my ease of conceptualizing designs based on your needs or thoughts will make all of your projects with us perfect.

Nima Nouri
Graphic Artist

Shape warlock specializing in visual spells, I have been conjuring works of art from a young age. Gradually I moved from crayons on walls to graphite on paper, to acrylics, and finally to Adobe CC. Familiar with the spawns of Adobe and other interfaces of creation, I have been putting my wild imagination to use professionally since 2003. I live for spontaneous adventures, unexpected outcomes and crafting great experiences and real connections through art and design. I love creating art, not just for the experience, but for what it can do for people.

Office Manager/CSR

I am Denver native and have 13 years of industry experience.
I love my job, and find joy in everything I do.
Outside of RMA, I put a lot of time, money, and love into my project car.
I also enjoy saltwater fish, cats, cars and anything that has to do with dinosaurs.
I love going to the museum and learning anything I can about everything.

Ian Rigby

My job at Rocky Mountain Apparel is in the customer service department, however there are a lot of things that I do here that aren’t easy to label as one specific job type. Taking your order is top priority to me and I always work very hard to make sure everything goes smoothly throughout the job. I look forward to working with you and getting you a product that you will love and remember.

As a huge lover of music, my favorite thing to do is seeing live music. I have lived in Colorado for close to 5 years and I am originally from Alabama.

Zoe Chase

A recovering Florida state University seminole, Zoe moved to Colorado in 2015, and has since been improving. She has a passion for helping people and animals both. Her ability to find the common ground between what our customers want and staying within their budget helps everyone win in the end.

Desiree Jiron

I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Rocky Mountain Apparel Team! I have over a decade of experience in customer service, and 2 years’ experience in promotional product customization. I have lived in Colorado since I was 9, so I’m pretty much a native, right? I love rock music, reading, tacos, SciFi, and fantasy.

Zack Smith
Screenprint Production Manager

I have spent the last 9 years in the Screen Printing industry, most of that time has been spent here at Rocky Mountain Apparel. In that time I have had an array of different jobs and responsibilities. Ranging from quality control, lead manual printer, to lead auto printer. I pride myself on my experience and knowledge in this industry and will do whatever it takes to achieve the highest quality prints for all of our customers.
I recently graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver with a bachelor of science in finance. In my spare time I play guitar for a local band Telemetry, we’ve had the opportunity to tour around different parts of the country over the last few years.

Scott Hawk
Lead Screen Tech

Star date 1984.

A location known as Johnstown PA.

It is in this setting our friend “Spock” began his 30 plus year career printing t-shirts and perfecting his skills as a screen tech. His journey to go where no man has gone before led him to colorado in the spring of 2000.
He joined the RMA team in 2010 and has been one of our most stellar employees.
His attention to detail, and to be frank, his obsessive compulsive tendencies make him a perfect fit for pre-production proofing of every job that goes to screen.
