About Me

Hi, my name is Russell Beattie and this is my website. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me at russ@russellbeattie.com or you can follow me on Twitter here.

Check out my resume for more details about my work life. I grew up in New England, went to school in New Hampshire, have lived in or around Miami, Atlanta, Kansas City, Los Angeles and Madrid Spain, and I currently reside in gorgeous Los Altos, California (near San Francisco in Silicon Valley). I've traveled throughout Europe, visited Egypt, Mexico, Canada and a variety of Caribbean islands. I went to college for Graphic Design and Journalism, became a programmer and consultant in the mid 1990s, speak Spanish fluently and have a wonderful son who's just old enough to know better. I'm also a die-hard Liberal, total geek, stand 6'2" and have turned almost entirely grey haired before my time.

And just in case, here's an old post which gives tips on how to properly spell and say my name.
