QuirkyCube is a small, entrepreneurial company creating custom software for other small, entrepreneurial companies.


If you become one of my clients, you'll work directly with me on technology projects that help your business flourish. I excel at solving business problems by understanding strategy first, then leveraging technology to meet strategic goals. I emphasize business results over technical details, but the technology still matters. Check out my work to see some of my results and the technology I used.


 I’m a Solopreneur

I work directly with every client. Depending on the scope of the project, I may bring in some additional help, but I generally prefer the dynamic of working one-on-one with my clients.


Russ Martin
Founder & Technology Lead

I wrote my first software program when I was ten years old. Over time, I developed an appreciation for the real-world problems technology could solve. This pragmatic approach has been a guiding force in my 20+ year technology career. I have technology experience in roles ranging from development team member to hiring manager. Thus, I understand what makes a project successful. 

I hold an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. I concentrated my studies on strategic management, managerial and organizational behavior, and entrepreneurship. I am also the creator of Strategy Mountain, a tool for communicating strategy. My previous project, Solo Founders Unite, focused on supporting fellow entrepreneurs. My work was featured in the Chicago Tribune and Built in Chicago.

I have industry experience in investment management, pharmaceuticals, banking, and manufacturing. I have worked with and advised several startups. Beyond technology, I maintain a keen interest in entrepreneurship and strategic management.
