SAGE COLLEGE OF ALBANY
Meradith Kill is a senior Graphic and Media design student at Sage College of Albany. She received her initial degree for Illustration in 2005 and accidentally started working in insurance soon after. Eight, long, painful years later, she returned to college. At Sage, she enrolled in the Graphic Design program, and hasn’t looked back once (though she occasionally finds herself answering insurance questions on the sly). She shares a home in rural New York with her long-suffering, patient husband and their two not-so-patient dogs. Meradith enjoys drawing on bananas, trying to find people who play Pinochle, and saving the world of Azeroth with her undead warlock. In her sophomore year, she discovered e-book design and it was love at first sight. She hopes someday to work in a dark, cave-like cubicle and create e-pub masterpieces. Some windows would be acceptable, if they had blinds and there was a cappuccino maker.
