At the top of his class at the Western Canadian School of Auctioneering, Russ is a talented and successful auctioneer. Versatile, adaptive, with a great sense of humor, a customer can tell that Russ is enjoying every minute of the sale. Russ has worked in just about every aspect of the Auction industry since receiving his diploma in Calgary, Alberta August 7th, 1993.
Russ and his crew have had the honor of being chosen to do the auctioneering for Brookfield Properties annual charity auction in Calgary, Alberta for the 'Make a Wish' foundation of Canada. This fundraiser helps raise thousands of dollars each year for children who are diagnosed with a life threatening illness.

Laughing for Cancer was an annual benefit for the Alberta Cancer Foundation in aid of Edmonton's Cross Cancer Institute. Laughing for Cancer raised $1,000,000 for the ACF through a live, and often lively auction and comedy show.
