Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there, Russell here. Currently I'm finishing my college degree
at East Tennessee State University. I'm a senior and hope to
graduate as soon as possible.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a background interpreting astronomy at Bays Mountain Park in
Kingsport, Tennessee. I worked many, many volunteer hours in the
eighties and then worked three or four planetarium internships in
the late eighties and early nineties. I really enjoyed talking to
people of all ages about the cosmos.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Aviation History has been a great interest of mine since as long as
I can remember being able to read. The men and machines in both the
military and civil realm of aviation has always fascinated
My interest in astronomy has been for the last 32 years. I enjoy
interpreting celestial objects seen in the telescope for people. It
is very satisfying to teach people of all ages about our cosmos;
it's certainly a very interesting place indeed!
I also enjoy building plastic scale model aircraft and painting
them with an airbrush. Making sure the markings and colors are
accurate is great fun, it teaches you about history and also gives
you a very neat object to place on your shelf at home.
The first things people usually notice about me

I read Aviation History magazine, Flight Journal, Astronomy or Sky
and Telescope magazine. I generally read anything I'm interested
The last two books I read was on the American bombing campaign in
Europe by the Army Air Force in WW2. Also, Parallax which dealt
with the race in the early 19th century to measure the distance to
the first star.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My mother and father; although they both have passed. My brother
and sister, who both live out of the area. Intellectual
stimulation. Love of friends and family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The universe, the meaning of life. Everything from UFO's to life
after death interests me. I wonder if identity goes on after death;
I hope so, the idea of my intellect and personality evaporating at
physical death is somewhat terrifying.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I don't know, get to know me and find out. I would prefer to find
someone who doesn't sport body art or unusual piercings. I have
never quite got why people do that to themselves.
