Summary of Experience
Within the last few years, I have worked with various editorial and research based jobs that required me to manage projects and assignments, conduct extensive research, conduct interviews, manage confidential spreadsheets and documents, and perform administrative duties. With a semester left, I will graduate with a B.S. in Economics and an English minor. Surf culture has been a passion of mine since before I entered high school and I look forward to contributing to the industry.
