My name is Jake Fenton, my mom, dad and sister are all currently living in Thames, New Zealand, but originally we are from a small coastal town in Connecticut called Old Lyme. I will be graduating this May with a B.A. in Communication Studies and a focus in Integrated Marketing Communication.
I have been fortunate enough to have had a very fun and diverse college career. I am most proud of my accomplishments as the President of the Ski & Snowboard Club, but have also worked as the lead special effects artist for an award winning production company Hendy Street Productions, and served as an account manager for the student-run agency Pier 601 Creative. Having made life-long friends all over the world while studying abroad in Wollongong, Australia, I am grateful to the Communication Studies Department and UNCW as a whole for allowing me to focus and pinpoint my ambition into impactful projects.
I am a huge music geek and an advocate for all things fun. In my free time you can find me in some way, shape or form on the water: surfing, sailing, fishing, kayaking, floating, etc! I look forward in sharing my thoughts and ideas through Hawks Blog!
