Interaction Designer, Google
Graphics Intern, The Washington Post
June – August 2013 (Three months)
One of the hardest gigs ever! I spent the summer trying to keep up with the top-notch Post crew as I designed and built interactives for such big summer stories as the Bradley Manning verdict, NASA’s next mission, and, most importantly, the royal baby.
Instructor, University of Florida
January – August 2012 (6 months)
It’s really important to share what you know so we’ve got a whole world of design thinkers. Or at least fewer egregious uses of Comic Sans. To that end, I developed and taught the introductory web design course for the inaugural launch of UF’s online masters program in digital communication.
MSc. Digital Media, Georgia Tech
August 2011 – May 2013 (2 years)
Unearthed my inner geek hanging out with the engineer/art kids in the Digital Media program.
September 2008 – August 2011 (3 years)
At the start of this job we made fun of things like Twitter and the iPad. By the end of it social media and mobile was serious business. So much change! Along with daily news design asks, I contributed to a 2009 site redesign, 2012 elections branding and presentation pitches to partner companies like Facebook and Apple as we worked to redefine digital storytelling.
Design intern, The Virginian-Pilot
May – August 2008 (3 months)
I got to work at one of the most beautiful papers in the world (really – it’s gorgeous!) by placing third in the 2007 Society for News Design “The Intern” competition.
Ba. Graphic Design, UNC-Chapel Hill
August 2004 – May 2008 (4 years)
Originally wanted to be a Hallmark card designer. Then I discovered newspapers. Then newspapers fell apart. But it all turned out okay!
