Fostering Connection Through a Life of Creative Integrity

Rowland S. Russell is a bricoleur, combining writing, art, music, teaching, mentoring and consulting into a multifaceted career.  In his studies in natural history and ecology, he’s found the inspiration and wisdom that informs his creative process,  professional practice. and spiritual discipline.  His words and images convey a deeply experienced relation to nature within and around him; his teaching, advising and mentoring link students to ideas, books, places, each other, and to their deeper selves; his information systems expertise, consulting skills and board service weave institutions and projects into the warp and weft of community, ecology and technology.  Connecting seemingly isolated elements in nature and culture creates vivid tapestries of learning, healing, hope and sustenance.

It’s all about connecting: his words and images convey a deeply experienced relation to nature within and around him; his teaching, advising and mentoring link students to ideas, books, places, each other, and to their deeper selves; his information systems expertise, consulting skills and board service weave institutions and projects into the warp and weft of community, ecology and technology.
