Russell Redford was born in Sahuarita Arizona, just south of Tucson. There he enjoyed the great outdoors and great food. During the hot summer, months you can find him reading books like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, or rewatching Star Wars. He attended Arizona State University and received his Bachelor's degree in Human Communication with a minor in Business. While studying, he had the privilege of teaching High School in Arizona for two and a half years. After graduating, he pursued a career in Human Resources with a focus on recruiting, training, and professional development. Last summer, Russell and his wife decided they were tired of sweating in the Phoenix, Arizona sun. They took their adventure north to the Great Salt Lake Valley to soak in the beautiful climate and landscape. After spending a few years in the Human Resources field, Russell decided that it was not the life for him. What better life could there be than helping others reach their full potential? He is going back to the classroom that he loves.
When Russell is not teaching, he loves to go on hikes, bike rides, and other activities that take him outside with his wife and 3 young children. You can also find him in the back yard with his grill perfecting his new recipes to tempt the tastebuds or having lightsaber battles with his children.
