Snapshot of Russ

If you could have dinner with any 3 people in history who would they be?

Dad, Michael Jordan, and Kevin Woods.

What's something that people might be surprised to know about you?

I lost my wedding ring while working at a school one day, only to have someone find it buried in the dirt three years later when they were planting a bush outside that school. The ring was engraved so the person had to track me down using initials and a wedding date–truly amazing.

If you weren't in this industry, what would you be doing?

I would hope to still be involved in videography.

What was your dream job as a kid?

To play in the NBA.

Favorite movie?

I don't really have a favorite movie, but I love watching the ESPN 30 for 30 documentaries.
