Russell grew up on the Central Coast, earning his AA degree in
Mathematics and Physics at Allan Hancock College. 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. Little
did he know this part time job would turn into a career! Russell
started as a customer service rep, then weekend supervisor.
