About Me

I'm Jay!  I am graduating from the University of Oregon with a degree in Journalism with a focus in public relations. I am interested in doing public relations because it will allow me to communicate with a large variety of people in many different ways every single day.  Using written communication, verbal communication, or social media, I can't wait to engage with people and interact with them.

This is my online portfolio. It contains much of the work that is also in my physical portfolio. I hope you enjoy looking through my work that I've completed over the past four years. I'm very proud of my accomplishments.

In my spare time I enjoy playing and listening to music, cooking (mac and cheese is my specialty), going to the gym, and spending time with my friends.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my VisualCV or about myself.
