Maxfield Fulton ‘08

“After graduating from Lewis & Clark in 2008 with a B.A. in art history and English, I spent a year in New York City where I divided my time between working as an analyst at a boutique private equity firm and providing project management and writing support to an assortment of non-profit organizations in the sports, healthcare, and media sectors. My background in art history enabled me to provide art direction on a number of web and print marketing campaigns. In 2010, I returned to Portland to pursue an M.A. in English at Portland State University, concentrating on the British Romantics and their successors.”
