Julian Bustillo

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