Our youth is often referred to as the foundation of our personality, principles and dreams. For Russ, who grew up in LA, the city is very much the bedrock of his life today. From playing little league American football in his local park to hoops in middle school, high school and college, the city of Los Angeles has been homecourt to Russ. Much like pieces of a puzzle, each of these memories has its own unique characteristics, pattern and dimension, fitting perfectly together to make one large masterpiece. Inspired by Russ' youth in Los Angeles, 'Upbringing' honours the moments, places and teams that shape who we become as athletes and individuals.
