Bachelors Fine Arts - Advertising

Minneapolis College of Art and Design

My degree taught me how to figure out what customers want and to convincingly talk to them through digital and print mediums.  MCAD's degree is unique as it included a ton of hands on work experience on projects for real clients.  For one project I was a winning finalist in the One Show advertising competition in NYC.
