A short bio: Raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, Linda migrated to upstate New York for warmer weather. At Cornell, Linda underwent the process of “de-Christianing,” which inspired her to move to LA upon graduation to become a happy heathen. Linda’s been a Video Producer at BuzzFeed and is a regular guest speaker at VidCon — the world’s largest conference for online video. Her proudest accomplishment is her YouTube channel where she gives 17,000+ subscribers fun life advice, including how to find a good therapist (www.youtube.com/openellbey). Linda writes characters stuck between two lives: an outwardly happy one and an inwardly miserable one.
Linda also writes: pros and cons lists to getting a large dog and texts on Jessica’s phone explaining to Rick why ghosting is shitty.
