Janelle Velasquez

Entertainment Columnist

Proud Seattle native who has bounced around the corners of the US. B.F.A. from Ithaca College in upstate NY where I fell in love with Thai food, hippies, and underground bluegrass. MBA from Pepperdine University where I discovered Warren Buffet and I started our careers in the exact same way (paper route). I recently helped David Byrne tell the story of the rise and fall of Imelda Marcos under a disco ball at New York's Public Theater (Here Lies Love) and I've popped into a few television shows with a mission to bully the protagonist. That said, I strongly stand behind the anti-bullying movement. Favorite undertaking: rescuing my adorable yappy mutt (Betty Draper).
