JILL ANNE RUSSELL CREATIVE

My name is Jill. I'm a writer, editor, designer, and branding expert who helps clients figure out what to say and how to say it in a way that makes sense for their audience and business initiatives. Creative storytelling is what I do best.

Before landing in sunny Los Angeles, I went from Detroit to Philadelphia to Boston to Chicago. The best job I ever had—sandwich artist, Subway store #14572—funded me through high school, college, and many, many movie tickets.
