I'm Jackson "Jack" Dulzo, a University of Oregon grad and Portland transplant. I grew up in Los Angeles, but after visiting UO in high school I knew that Oregon would be my next step. At UO I majored in both Advertising and Public Relations within the School of Journalism and Communication, and I couldn't be happier to be a Duck Alumni. My creative background (photography, video editing and graphic design) gave me the tools to be effective in any number of roles, but I have found a passion for creative strategy, production and strategic communication.
Presently I work as a Product Manager at Adpearance in Portland, Oregon. Previously I worked as a Client Service Intern at Davis Elen Advertising, and I have also worked with the SOJC communications office, the UO Club Sports office, and the Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities. More information about these positions can be found on my résumé.
I devote most of my free time to volleyball; I've been playing for around eight years now, including for UO as captain of the men's club team. In addition to playing and leading my team on the court, I served my team as coordinator and coach. This had me leading tryouts, coaching practices, and managing all manner of team affairs, including budget, travel, and tournaments. Over the years I've accumulated lifelong friends, all-league honors, and countless fond memories. Currently I am an assistant Varsity coach at Southridge High School.
The work showcased on this website is an amalgamation of projects both scholarly and personal; everything is of my sole creation unless stated otherwise. Check out Top Shelf for a showcase of some of my best work.
Competition has shaped my life. Whether in sports, school, or hobbies, I've always been driven by challenge and a desire to be the best. Even in new adventures and unfamiliar territory I push for the best from myself and my teammates. I know greatness is possible, so why settle for less?
This is why I'm experienced in so many areas. I never start something and stop part way through. I rarely take up a new pastime casually; I keep working and improving until there is nothing left to achieve. Challenges both new and familiar are exciting; they give me a chance to discover and prove what I am capable of, both with a group and on my own.
Every day I compete with my peers, my superiors, and myself to be better at every turn, every step, and every attempt.
