Courtney Mason Hilley is a 24 year old multi-entrepreneur from Mobile, AL. She is the Co-Founder and Senior Editor of Bellum, an online journal turned coffee table book focused on "redefining life in the south", and the Co-Owner of Chaleur Method Brew + Espresso, a third wave coffee shop in Midtown Mobile. She attended the University of Mobile from 2010-2014, where she majored in English, and took three and a half years of classical training and leadership skills in music and music business.
As a musician, she released her Love Like Water EP in 2013 and The Canyon in September of 2014, under the band name Eleanor. Eleanor is currently working on their sophomore album, release date TBD.
With a bad habit of keeping her hands busy, she fills what spare time she has with freelance illustrating (designing things in and outside of collaboration with her husband, designer and photographer Christian Hilley), barbering in her at-home barber shop (Sunroom Barbershop), and sewing.
Long term, she has a dream of creating a discipleship program for young men struggling with sexual addictions, attacking human trafficking at its core.
