Russell Troy

DIRECTOR AND CAPTAIN

Being the son of a farmer in far west NSW, Russell has always had a love for playing in the dirt and building things out of timber, scrap metal, sticks and mud. Russell studied Civil Engineering and worked in Local Government for several years before taking a leap into the world of playgrounds. Russell loves the process of taking a concept from sketch to final product, taking great pleasure in creating better places for our kids to play. Russell champions the benefits of nature play and is motivated every day to better our playground designs, products, and understanding of play.
