Russell grew up in Yakima and after graduating from Washington State University’s School of Architecture in 1992 worked in local firms and had his own design studio focusing on high detail renderings of buildings of all types as well as custom homes. In 1999 he moved to Bellevue and worked in high profile architectural and interior design firms to round out his experience. Russell ran a major national retail account as well as working on a variety of project types from high-end custom homes to twin tower high-rise projects. He has moved back to Yakima and is now part of the professional staff at BORArchitecture. Russell balances his design orientated approach with realistic and practical values to meet or exceed the clients expectations. In addition to Project Management, he is a skilled architectural illustrator.
