Filipina. Writer. Ad School Pupil. West Los Angeleno.
Born and raised in Culver City, California, Jo Ellen has worked at 826 L.A. in Mar Vista, Ocean Charter School, United Way of Greater Los Angeles, and St. Joseph Center. Through a series of fortunate events, she found a passion for creative writing, graphic design, non-profits, and, later on, advertising. Ever since finding these passions, seeking a marriage of all four is a personal and professional goal of hers.
She's currently studying the ways of the world of art direction at The Book Shop.
