Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland. My family emigrated to The Bronx, NY in 1987 and lived there for two years. We then moved to Orangeville, Ontario.
Russell and his wife (sans kids) at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, Ireland.
I attended Orangeville District Secondary School (ODSS), graduated and then carried onto Humber College in Toronto where I studied Digital Design earning myself an honors diploma.
Shortly after graduation I landed a job as Web Designer / Analyst at OCAD University (OCADU). On March 2011 I moved into a role at PwC Canada as their Digital Designer and in November 2013 moved once more to RBC Capital Markets as their Lead UI/UX Designer.
I also run a small digital design shop that i’d like to nurture and grow over the years ahead. The shop caters to web/graphic design, SEO/SEM, website content management/maintenance and web analytics consultation and implementation.
My wife and I have a two awesome little girls; one at 4 yrs and the other one at 1 yrs and we couldn’t be happier!!
I am extremely passionate about design and am looking forward to where this new role at RBC Capital Markets takes me.
