Hi! I'm Russell Beattie.

About me: I grew up in New England, went to school in New Hampshire, have lived in or around Miami, Atlanta, Kansas City, Los Angeles and Madrid Spain, traveled throughout Europe, and visited Egypt, Mexico, Canada and a bunch of Caribbean islands. I currently reside in gorgeous Mountain View, California (near San Francisco in Silicon Valley).

I went to college for Graphic Design and Journalism, became a programmer and consultant in the mid 1990s, and a blogger, developer advocate, speaker and product manager in the 2000s. I speak Spanish fluently from my time in Spain, and I'm a die-hard Liberal, total geek, stand 6'3" and have turned almost entirely grey haired before my time. I also have a wonderful son who's now studying at UCSC.
