Russell showed signs of autism as a newborn, however, he was not formally diagnosed until the age of 12 after suffering through five weeks in a lockdown psychiatric facility. In 2011, Russell wrote a book titled Inside Out: Stories and Poems from an Autistic Mind, which was featured in the LA Times, earned an Honorable Mention at the 2012 NY Book Festival; read by Temple Grandin, and won the award for Literary Excellency at the 2013 International Autistic People’s Awards in Vancouver, Canada.

Russell currently travels the world spreading hope, awareness, and compassion in a raw and dynamic fashion, while also setting his sights on erasing the stigma and stereotypes that come with having a disability. Russell’s passion is to be a voice for the unheard, for he knows how difficult and frustrating it is to go unnoticed. Don’t miss this session!
