The silly "one-page" convention, de rigueur
in the 80s, is now passe in the US; still, it is not advisable to go beyond two pages unless you have extraordinary credentials.
Use simple black-and-white pages with simple, clear formatting; recruiters are not impressed by fancy colors and fonts, they're impressed by clearly accessible information. Also, don't include a photo on a resume going to the US.
