Born and raised in Ventura county, schooled in Computer science at CSU Long Beach. Russell has worked a few odd jobs here and there but one of his favorites (Other than Zya of course!) has been on a food truck. He helped make gourmet wild boar and alligator crepes while maintaining the IT operations at the same time. He has worked in the commercial aerospace industry and government/military he helped with their ERP system and things like embedded GPS, and internal tools for data migration. Outside of work he often finds himself competing in hackathons, searching for speakeasies, or reliving his food service past by whipping up a mean crepe. He also enjoys experimenting with different technologies from IOT to 3D printing and everything in between.
