Russell Builds Products

Hey there, welcome to my little slice of the Internet!

You may view a list of my active projects below the text.

Finding simple solutions to difficult problems, gives me a rush.

I turn ideas into products and often prototype using Python. I admire readable, testable code, and I enjoy the process of refactoring.

As a strong advocate of opensource, I donate my code and time when I can.

My first successful product launch was LinkPeek which I still operate today. I'm actively bootstrapping Remarkbox, a hosted comment service.

I currently work for Remind as a software engineer where I write software to manage infrastructure running in AWS.

You should contact me. I love conversation and always responds in a timely manner!
