Courtney Renae Eleanor Mason Hilley (yeah, it’s a long name) is a multi-entrepreneur from Mobile, AL. In 2014 she co-founded Bellum, an independent magazine focused on "redefining life in the south" (Previously Ant Farm Journal), acting as the Editor in Chief, and owns with her husband Chaleur Method Brew + Espresso, a third wave coffee shop in Midtown Mobile. “Accidental business owners” are what she and her husband call themselves, and though she keeps her hands moving and ideas flowing, she thinks of herself as more of an advocate, having a slight distaste for the term “entrepreneur”.

Side hustles:

Eleanor:  Released The Canyon in September of 2014, and is currently working on a sophomore album.

Freelance Illustration: In and outside of collaboration with her husband, designer and photographer Christian Hilley.

Sunroom Barbershop: Her in-home barbershop, where she practices fades in addition to her apprenticship to become a Master Barber.

Long term, she has a dream of creating a discipleship program for young men struggling with sexual addictions, attacking human trafficking at its core.
