I am a Senior Graphic Designer, most recently working for the Human Resource Communications group at Capital One. I performed as key designer and producer of the brand, identity, marketing, and communications for the company’s Human Resources Communications group. In this role, I worked on all aspects of a project from meeting with clients and developing concepts, to desktop publishing and vendor management. Whether it was an ad hoc request or performing as the Graphic Design Consultant for a project team, I handled a variety of design projects for HR which supported key corporate initiatives.
Following my 1992 graduation from Collins College in Tempe, Arizona, I began my graphic design career working in a small print shop in Ashland, Virginia. I honed my skills by taking on several temporary entry-level design positions before becoming a full-time Graphic Designer for the Virginia General Assembly's House of Delegates. During my six years in this position, I designed and produced newsletters for the Delegates and worked on various projects for the House, including the creation of the House and Senate’s first Web site.
