After meeting his wife, Megan, in San Luis Obispo, he moved to Sacramento to pursue a BA in Mathematics at Sac State, applying for what he thought would be a part-time job at the Aquatic Center.

His senior year he served as an integral member of the Aquatic Center’s Facilities team learning the ins and outs of the infrastructure, operations, and special events. Russell’s love for the Aquatic Center led to him make it a career, becoming the new Facilities Manager in April 2022.
