Have you ever seen something so breathtaking that you feel you must share it? You know that catching a glimpse of such a sight will restore your sense of wonder or soften the hard edges of daily life. Jack Butler, an Imagineer and CEO of Butler Graphics, has an office atop the famed Fisher Building and has made “Ambassador To the Sky” part of his job description.
