Angele Douglas Russell

I like to laugh. I love taking on challenges and responding with accurate, timely, and professional solutions. A lawyer by trade and a former Peace Corps Volunteer in Tanzania, East Africa, I pen a blog, Dinners + Dates, which is a resource for all things romance and love inspiration!

I also serve as a brand strategy consultant for comedienne and actress, Yvonne Orji, where she most recently secured a magazine feature with T.D. Jakes Ministries for Yvonne's Rock Your Stance clothing line. Additionally, I am responsible for the overall branding of the site, as well as for securing partnerships on behalf of the brand.

I have also had the honor of providing independent consulting services (creative/ event planning/marketing/editing/research) for various notables including Dr. Jeff Gardere, Paul C. Brunson, the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), Grind & Thrive, Chris Kazi Rolle, and actor Terrence Howard, just to name a few. I am also a freelance writer for Insight Magazine, Madame Noire, Urban Cusp, and I pen my own service blog, May I Speak To Your Manager.

I believe in organic partnerships and relationships and hate to force a fit! What I know for sure is that what God has for me, it's especially for me and no one else; I just have to be prepared for it when it comes along! Oh, and I like to laugh!
