About Us

Shine On Team

David Anderson. President/CEO.

David’s background in sales, marketing, nonprofit fundraising, and many years as an executive level leader has found a welcome place at Shine On Signs.   David’s career has had many interesting stops along the way including several technology companies, and nonprofit organizations.  He attended the University of Washington, College of Engineering Technical Communications and studied technical writing.   That interest quickly translated into work with IBM, Egghead Software, Allied Telesis, WRQ, Mitel, Onvia, and Digital.forest in sales capacities.  His work at Digital.forest evolved into executive leadership where he worked directly for the CEO as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for 7 years.

For the next 11 years of his career, he led small local non-profits as their Executive Director and raised money as a senior fundraiser for larger organizations namely United Way, Red Cross, and American Diabetes.

David enjoys sports with emphasis on UW sports and Mariner baseball, music, travel, running, outdoor activities, yardwork (yes, really.) and especially loves to share these activities with his daughter, JJ and wife, Tanya who are not always willing participants.

Tanya Anderson. CFO/COO.

Tanya brings 21 years of finance and executive leadership experience to Shine On Signs. A graduate of Santa Clara University, her career has largely been focused on government and non-profit finance.   She served as the Controller at Evergreen Health, a public hospital in Kirkland, WA, for 3 years before branching out into consulting and Senior leadership as a Director of finance at Social Venture Partners.  She is currently the Principal at Nonprofit Finance Consulting LLC.   Her role with Shine on signs as the Co-Owner covers all finance and HR responsibilities, and ownership and senior management direction with David.

In her spare time, Tanya also runs a small company focused on meditative dance called Joyful Movement.  She enjoys hiking, outdoor exercise, travel, expressive painting, and gardening.  She especially loves to share all these activities with her daughter, JJ, who is always a willing participant! 

Darrin Jones. Mr. Fix-It.

Darrin is our handy dandy Graphic Designer and Production Assistant. He has more than 15 years experience in graphic design ranging from small print to large format signage. He has personally taken projects from concept to finished design. From time to time Darrin will dig into final production and installation. He knows Graphic Designers are expected to be creatives as well as perfectionists. Darrin is most filled with pride whenever a satisfied customer can appreciate their new signage without any flaws.

When not working hard on designs, he will be making the most of his time off. Playing games, watching movies, or simply relaxing at home helps him rejuvenate. He also finds it very important to make time for his friends and family.
