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 feel like I'm at my best when I can turn ideas into products. I often prototype using Python and admire readable, testable code. The process of refactoring is like a crossword puzzle to me and brings me joy.

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

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

My long term goal is to work for myself. My first successfully bootstrapped product launch was LinkPeek which I still operate today. Right now I'm actively bootstrapping Remarkbox, a hosted comment service.

You should contact me. I love conversation and often respond in a timely manner!
