Russell is a fairly new NYC based Laner. He’s been with the team for just a few months but has worked several events. So far his favorite gig was working with Crony Creative for the Reebok x Foot Locker Cam’ron and Trevor Andrew ‘3:AM’ Content Series Launch. Russell loved being about to hang with the VIPs attending the event, Gucci Mane in particular!
When asked about the Lane Russell said, “I love the people. Mustard Lane is filled with kind, unique, hard-working people. I’ve had really positive experiences working alongside other aspiring performers and artist and comedians. It’s been a blast, so far.”
Outside the Lane Russell is an actor and singer, who is constantly auditioning! He loves playing basketball and dodging traffic on his road bike. He also enjoys seeing plays, live music and comedy shows.
Fun Fact: Russell is scared of horses because they have people-teeth and it freaks him out! 😆
