Would you be happy to give this business card to a potential employer? Why/Why not?

Yes, I would be happy to give this business card to a potential employer; I think the coloration expresses me as a person because the colors I used are both different but work well together and the logo is also a good expression of myself. I think that I would take my three word brand off of the card and add a description of my scholarly specialization (ie. Journalism and Business) so that my professional expertise is clear. 

What would you do differently with this business card if you had more time and/or skills?

If I had more time/skills I would add Twitter, cellphone and an e-mail icon in front of my contact information because I think that it would make my card look more professional and fun as well, considering that one of my three personal brand words is "fun." I also would play around with adding a black border around the inside of the card because it would sharpen the design of the card.
