Dave Russell - Upheaval Advisor
A veteran lobbyist and policy advisor, David Russell developed a passion for the legislative process during eight years as a senior staff member in the United States Senate. In private practice, he provides regulatory, legislative, and political advice to a diverse range of clients across numerous regulated industries.

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Dave served as Legislative Director and Chief of Staff to a senior U.S. Senator and later as Chief Counsel for the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, which has jurisdiction over technology, communications, and numerous tech-focused regulatory agencies. Mr. Russell is equally at home in both the authorizing and appropriations arenas and has extensive experience with the Senate confirmation of presidential appointees, congressional committee hearings, and Senate floor procedure.

In 2017, Dave led the successful campaign to elect his wife to the School Board in Falls Church, VA, where they raise their two children. An avid CrossFitter, he can often be found in D.C. traffic jams enjoying the Grateful Dead channel or calling in (hands free) to his favorite soccer talk shows on satellite radio.
