Director of Product Management, About.com

In His Words


"Media Fellows is flexible and allows you to explore your passions."

"Having access to the alumni network is incredibly valuable. Some of my closest friends in New York were in my Media Fellows class."

"The semester-long internship gave me an opportunity to feel like a native in New York and take on long-term projects other interns couldn’t tackle. It’s the reason I was hired after graduation."
