OBJECTIVE & SUMMARY

Objective:To obtain professional experience in Media Production.

While in college, I worked on an advertising campaign and marketing plan for a Children's Garden Walk sponsored by a non-for -profit organization in Buffalo, New York. I created the logo, slogan, and advertisement for the project. The experience sharpened my client listening skills and permitted me the opportunity be a member of a team working together to meet the client's objective. My undergraduate work has also allotted me some experience in writing television and radio commercials. My peers voted my work the best-written television commercial in our class. My undergraduate courses have exposed me targeting consumers and engage an audience.
