About Jesse Russell
Before Oakland, there was Madison, Wisconsin. In Madison, the hours that weren’t filled up by my day job were typically devoured by event planning and running the city’s popular arts and politics news site, Dane101
. Some of the events I organized include an annual two-night cabaret/carnival/masquerade party called the Fire Ball Masquerade
, Madison's biggest non-city sponsored Halloween party
, the geek culture focused MadPubQuiz of Awesomeness
, and the first Whedonesque Burlesque
in the country.
Having successfully reshaped the reality of Madison, Wisconsin I packed up and moved to the Bay Area in February of 2013.
In addition to comics, I enjoy imbibing cocktails and beer, exploring foreign cities, consuming food of various temperatures, hearing music performed live, losing at board and card games, and getting caught in the rain.
