Russell Brown was born in California and cruised on a trimaran as a kid, with his family in the early 1970's until they settled in VA. He has been building his own boats since his teens when he built a 30ft proa and sailed to the Caribbean. He has built several large boats since then, as well as nesting dinghies and nesting kayaks. For years he specialized in making custom composite boat parts, including International 14 racing foils and parts for several of the US America's Cup boats. Even though he has mastered the art of working with epoxy, he has more often than not, declined to be a public speaker on the subject. He began to write about it in recent years, since he and his wife, Ashlyn, began their boat kit business, Port Townsend Watercraft, specializing in nesting dinghy kits. He intends to write on several related topics and to create a DVD demonstrating the techniques described in his books.
