One thought on “Resume

  1. I’m a sophomore at the University of Nebraska this year double majoring in Art and Advertising. I’m hoping to find a path that leads me into art direction AND the ocean. Everything you have on your resume sounds like such an awesome experience and something I’d love to be a part of. I’ve taken private art lessons since I was six years old and have a passion for all types of visual art. Do you have any suggestions on how I could succeed and end up on a path similar to yours?
