Russ McCullough is the Wayne Angell Chair of Economics at Ottawa University in Kansas.  He joined OU in 2011 coming from Iowa State University where he earned his PhD in Public Economics and taught classes while pursuing many entrepreneurial endeavors.  He completed his BA degree at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota where he grew up.  While working on his dissertation in 1997, he was offered co-ownership in a small real estate firm he worked at through school that specialized in college student housing.  Property management and real estate sales eventually grew into having a few agents under his brokerage license.  Shortly thereafter his daily activities focused more on real estate development which included multi-family housing, commercial mixed-use buildings and subdivisions.  Real estate served as a catalyst into other business ventures including a construction company, a restaurant, a boutique hotel and an equestrian center.
