About Russell

I am a gender fluid writer. I have written multiple TV pilots (all sitcoms) with LGBTQ main characters. My current profession is as an editor and consultant for a healthcare organization in Canada (Toronto and Calgary). I've traveled extensively--Prague, Budapest, Saudi Arabia, Canada, UK, Germany, and other places. I own a graduate degree in Composition and Communication, written a children's book about a transgender whale trying to find her way in the world which is in the transgender archive at the University of Vancouver, edited two LGBTQ websites, and much more. I'm married with two lovely kids. I also run a baseball website and coach t-ball. In other words, I do a lot of things.

Beyond my sitcom writing, I'm available to be a consultant for any works (TV, films, books, etc.) that have LGBTQ, non-physical disabilities, and/or military veteran characters. If you want to make sure you're using the proper terms, presenting characters in an accurate manner, or just need advice on how a character might act in a situation, then let's talk.

Budding playwright too! Have a webseries in the making as well!

Unique traits: I have no belly button. Really. I don't. I'm also queer...though I'm not sure that's "unique". ;)
