As a kid who grew up with Broadway.com as his Internet home page, Aaron White found himself torn between his two passions: public relations and theater. The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire public relations major has been active in theater and singing for many years, and found a way to combine his interests through public relations and advertising focusing on Broadway and entertainment. Last summer, White landed a summer media internship at O&M Co., a public relations and press agency whose clients range from mainstream Broadway productions to off-Broadway and downtown shows, to world-class nonprofit institutions and legendary New York City night spots. Instead of performing on stage, White is using his public relations skills and education to make a difference in the music and theater industry from behind the scenes, AND that's pretty powerful.
