Ian A. Russell is a freelance writer, blogger and teacher located just outside Springfield, Massachusetts.

Over the past two years, he has worked as a copywriter, sportswriter and technical writer for web designers, online publications, professional bloggers and a major technology company.


Ian loves the flexibility that comes with working primarily out of his home office and the freedom to spend plenty of time with his family. Freelance writing has given him the opportunity to work with a broad range of clients, enrich his knowledge of many subjects and compete and succeed in a fast-paced environment – not to mention the occasional chance to write about himself in the third person.

With a B.A. in History and a B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Ian has a broad foundation of knowledge to support his work. In addition to his writing experience, he has worked for two years as a pre-college instructor for Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions.

Ian has remained in western Massachusetts following his graduation. He currently lives in Holyoke with his wife, Kathryn, and son, Tristan.
