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, focusing on internal communications, specifically towards students. He manages Campus Connection, Detroit Mercy’s internal newsletter for all employees and students, and runs the University’s Snapchat [@detmercy]. He also works in graphic design, branding, photography and video. Timmy Nelson is the faculty advisor for the Anime Enthusiast Association, an Alumni Board member, a freelance illustrator/cartoonist and a proud Hufflepuff.
