Yeah, I get that but conventionally, you go a long version first followed by the parenthesized acronym. For example, "Master of Fine Arts (MFA)". Maybe I'm making this up. Or, you could do "Master of Fine Arts" and be done with it.
A full time this, a part time that - "a" bothers me... doesn't it look wrong? I've never seen a shortened profile introduction that starts like "A father, an actor, a social activist...". It starts without an article, like "Actor, writer ..." I feel like an English minor should know to format and write better?!?
