Season 2: Episode 3: Talking with Writer David Russell about trying out different careers in your life
Manage episode 339420078 series 3346363
David Russell and I had a hard time setting up our interview. He is visually impaired and only uses keyboard commands. I didn't fully understand this because he presents on social media as someone without a disability. So "just click on the video icon on Facebook Messenger" was not going to cut it and Zoom seemed out of reach too. We finally used a regular phone call and I recorded us using Zoom.
The audio is not my usual high quality but I tried to make it work. David had a lot to share about his life and his various careers. What I heard was a person of good humor, determined to enjoy his life and always ready to try something new. Like all of my interviewees, I found him inspiring. He reminds us to keep trying and to not be afraid to change.
From piano player to music therapist to medical transciptionist, nothing stops David. His current incarnation seems to be his favorite, that of writer. He has been published on Spellwords (search for DavidCRussell) and you can find him on Facebook -- David C. Russell. He is currently working on a book which will be out next year -- Human Beig, Human Doing, so keep an eye out for it.
