Russell Irons is an IT Manager who is interested in the conservation of history. He studied math as a major and minored in education in his college years. He does not have much travel experience, but remembers some of his French from his high school years. He calls himself “old school,” and has been valuable during the restoration process of the hostel for getting the less glamorous less tasks, aka “grunt work” done. Fun fact: he knows how to pack things well and finding a way to fit a lot of stuff in small areas!
