Summary

Hello! I am currently a senior at Purdue University pursuing a major in Visual Communications Design and a minor in English, on track to graduate with honors in May 2011. After working with two other interns to market a liberal arts career and internship fair called The Professional Forum in the fall of 2009, I have returned to Liberal Arts Career Development as a Senior Intern, designing marketing collateral and promotional materials for the many events put on by LACD for Purdue students.An avid bibliophile, I hope to pursue a career in book design.
