Ron Foligno shares his story.

KJZZ is partnering with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers project on the radio. Storytellers in Phoenix share their stories at live events in town. Some of the stories are about living here, some are not.

When Ron Foligno was in high school, he worked at a screen printing business in Philadelphia. After moving to Phoenix years later, he decided to start his own screen printing business at the start of the recession. When money was tight, he lived in his warehouse in order to keep his business afloat.

Ron Foligno is the founder of Ghosticorn Apparel.

The next storytelling event is, Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015, at Changing Hands Bookstore in Phoenix. To learn more about the Arizona Storytellers project or how to tell your own story, visit
