After fencing on the varsity epee squad with the Detroit Mercy Titans, illustrating a comic strip for The Varsity News, and some important third thing (graduating), Timmy Nelson knew his journey with the University was far from over. Nelson joined Marketing & Communications in 2014, managing internal communications focused on student life, as well as content creation for social media. He manages Campus Connection, Detroit Mercy’s internal newsletter for all employees and students, and serves as the faculty advisor for the Detroit Mercy Anime Club. He also works in graphic design, branding, photography and video. Timmy Nelson is member of the Alumni Board, a freelance illustrator/cartoonist, Extra Lifer, Nintendo fanboy and a proud Hufflepuff.
