From September to December 2011, I was a Geography Intern in the Maps division at National Geographic. There I worked with Debbie Gibbons, Director of Cartographic Production, to research, design, and produce maps across the spectrum of National Geographic’s collection. After my Geography Internship, I became a Maps Apprentice at National Geographic Magazine. There I worked as part of a team of cartographers, illustrators, layout designers, graphic designers, and editors to design and create compelling maps to accompany stories in the magazine, for print and for the iPad.
