Austin Russell

Hey Everyone! Welcome to my About Me page. I don't usually talk too much about myself but since this page is all about me, I might as well.

I have always been a talented artist and entrepreneur. When I was 7 years old, the neighbors and I came up with a few business plans on how to make money, so we could afford to ride our bikes down to 7-11 to buy summer treats. Our services ranged from selling soda door-to-door to providing car washing package deals. For the past 20 years, I have developed a specific set of skills that have allowed me to thrive in the business world.

My determination to succeed has pushed me to step outside of my comfort zone in order to continue my journey to greatness. My biggest asset is that I DO NOT QUIT. I have failed several times in the past, just to pick myself back up and try something new. So in a sense, I don't consider those as failures, but more as a chance to learn and grow from that experience. This drive has allowed me to not only be the first one in my family to attend college, but attain a BFA in Graphic Design from Oregon State University.

While I was attending school, I started a fashion event production company, where I planned the events, designed marketing materials via photography and graphic design, and acted as an account manager for new clients. These skill sets have shaped the person that I am today and will continue to assist me in my journey to establish my advertising firm.
