Meet the crew that make your projects come to life!

Desiree Jiron

I couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Rocky Mountain Apparel Team! I have lived in Colorado since I was 9, so I’m pretty much a native, right? …RIGHT? I have over a decade of experience in customer service, and over 3 years’ experience in promotional product customization. Efficiency, accuracy, and accountability are all very important to me and I strive to show this in my work.   I love rock music, tacos, reading, tacos, SciFi, tacos, tacos and fantasy…..oh, and cheese.

Alishasaurus Rex
Office Manager/CSR/Superhero

I am Denver native and have 15 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.

Zack Smith
Screenprint Production Manager/ Whatever else we need him to be

I have spent the last 11 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 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 Autonomix, we’ve had the opportunity to tour around different parts of the country over the last few years.

CSR/ Filing Machine
Mary does pretty much anything we ask her to do, so we decided that she couldn’t just be a receptionist anymore. While she has transitioned into a new role, she is still more than happy to help out our customers in any way she can. She’s terrible at talking about herself, so we have written her bio for her because she’s awesome. Don’t be surprised if she throws out a few dad jokes. We can’t make her stop. We’ve tried.
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.

Nima Nouri
Art Director

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.

Kenny The Interninator
Graphic Artist
Hi! My name is Nghia Truong, but you can just call me Kenny. Creativity was an escape from the harsh realities I had to confront as a child, and now as an adult, it has evolved to become a passion. The modern and post-modernist styles of the mid 20th Century and that of today resonates with that of my own. The fun and whimsical nature of Push Pin Studios that could be enjoyed by both kids and adults alike, is a major influence on me and that in which I aim to emulate. Thus, when my work generate positive emotions, even for just a fraction of a second, I feel as though I have accomplished something—something very rewarding.
I’m literate in most of the major adobe programs such as Illustrator and Photoshop, with almost a decade of experience using them. 
DTG Specialist
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!

Daniel Rodrigez
Embroidery Manager

Danny originally started running embroidery machines in orange County California back in 1997.
He has multitudes of experience on many types of machines. Bauradan,  SWF, Brother, and of course the Tajima style machines we run now.
He moved to colorado in 2001 and joined our team at RMA in 2010.

Sam Neel
Assistant Screen Print Production Manager
Zack sets ’em up, Sam hits ’em out of the park. From mixing ink colors like a boss, to pulling films, to taping screens, to touching up prints- Sam does it ALL.
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.
