In honor of d.trio’s 15th anniversary we’ve asked all of the current employees to write two microblogs. One about their very first day at d.trio, the other about where they were 15 years ago.


My first day at d.trio was the first day d.trio existed. Maureen, Fred and I congregated in the basement of my house, warming ourselves in front of the fire that I built (because it was frigid and snowed everyday for a week), sharing one computer, one phone and one fax machine to get our little business off the ground. We were nervous and excited, wanting to fast-forward 6 months to see if we’d catch on. Fred didn’t like the food choices in my pantry (no chips!), but we really got along quite well, and we all lived to tell about it!
