CERTIFIED COPYWRITER / CLASS OF WINTER 2005
BA JOURNALISM / CLASS OF 2003
A semester abroad I'll never forget; speaking Spanish and immersing myself in Spanish culture.
When I was ten, my uncle, who at the time was a TV commercial producer at a big agency in Chicago, took me to my first commercial shoot. Maybe you remember the ad? It was a Super Bowl commercial for McDonald's starring Michael Jordan and Larry Bird. Yea, you know the one. As I am sure it would have had an impact on the ten-year-old version of yourself, witnessing the making of such a historic ad forever altered my career endeavors. And now you know how I got the advertising itch.
