TonyMBrown

Hello,
 My name is Anthony Brown. I recently graduated from Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania with a dual major in History and Art & Design concentrating on public history and graphic design.

I have had two consecutive internships at the Seminary Ridge Museum in Gettysburg, PA where I focused on exhibit design.
I have also worked as a volunteer at the Shippensburg Historical Society and done some field experience at the Cumberland County Historical Society.

I am currently looking for employment in the public history sector.

I have a website at www.tonymbrown.com, my resume is posted there as well as some of my recent projects.
