Russell Bradley

CSU Channel Islands
Director, Santa Rosa Island Research Station
My parents threw me in the ocean when I was five years old. I cried for a minute but then never got out. Originally from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, I am a marine biologist, improviser, storyteller, writer, and nature lover. My special affinity for islands and travels for work and play have led me throughout the wilds of the tropical and not so tropical Pacific. l have written many scientific publications, and have performed as a storyteller and improv actor throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Currently I am the Director of the Santa Rosa Island Research Station for California State University Channel Islands.
