Writer, humble crossword devotee
Cali-born and Texas raised, Hanna grew up in the Dallas area. She’s been in love with writing and stories for as long as she can remember — her aunt says she’s had her head stuck in a book since before she could read. Her passion for storytelling led her to major in advertising at UT Austin and join the Texas Creative portfolio program, where she sharpened her copywriting skills and met a lot of cool ad people. Before finishing up her bachelor’s in advertising, she managed the social media of an Austin nonprofit, wrote blogs and emails for a startup, dipped her toes into healthcare advertising, and interned with the 2022 Multicultural Advertising Internship Program.
