Russell's bio from LifeSTREAM website:
Who I am is an important consideration as we decide to work together. This doesn’t mean I can only work with folks exactly like me or with similar life experience. Nor that I believe I’m in some way “better than”. Rather these are things I bring to our time together and are part of safety and connection. They also reflect awareness of my privileges in this culture. So I’m:
Most importantly I am experiencing the joy and occasional challenge of being a single, co-parent, as the Father of twin boy and girl teenagers.
