Russell is HealthUnlocked's Head of Engineering. After language-hopping quite a bit in his early career, he found Clojure a little over four years ago and since then he is happy to report that the grass has stopped looking greener on the other side. (Except, idk, Erlang/Elixir is pretty cool. And Elm is interesting...)
When not programming Russell likes to do the odd cat or dog painting, or make songs about the small dogs you can see in the park near his office.
