Julian Bustillo

Brand Strategist

Born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, green chile runs through my veins. I moved out to New Orleans to attend Tulane University, where I earned a degree in marketing. Throughout college, I explored my interest in advertising and how it is evolving in our increasingly digital world. Following graduation, I chose to stay in New Orleans and have never looked back. When I’m not working on revamping brands, writing copy, and building social media content, I’m usually outside exploring the Big Easy. You can find me kayaking through City Park, attending any food-related festival, and hanging out with my dog, Roscoe.
