Russ Helfand has been twiddling bits for over two decades. He's been deeply involved in the Internet since 1997 when he started working for Elemental Software (ESI), makers of Drumbeat, an early authoring tool for ASP web sites. After Macromedia purchased ESI, Russ turned his attention to Dreamweaver, leading the development team's ASP.NET and CSS efforts. From early 2004 until late 2005, Russ worked for the ASP.NET team at Microsoft, initially developing prototype frameworks merging ASP.NET and WinFx, later as part of the original Atlas crew. Starting in 2006, Russ joined forces with his wife and partner, Heidi Bautista, doing private consulting and development under the business name www.GroovyBits.com. Russ' latest creation is a set of CSS Friendly ASP.NET Control Adapters, released by Microsoft in April/May 2006. Russ lives by the beach in Carpinteria, California where, each morning, he hunts for lost treasure with his trusty metal detector.
