After college I worked as a Graphic Artist for an oil company. In 1991 I was hired as an Art Director for a national publishing company. I spent the first few years handling photography and design for their local apartment guides in Austin, Texas. In 1993 I was promoted to one of their regional offices in Dallas, Texas and became a Regional Art Director. I produced 6 monthly publications. My responsibilities included: scheduling, ad design, page production, vendor coordination, and production budgets. In 1996 I was promoted to the title of Production Manager and moved to their corporate offices in Norcross, Georgia.
