Hi friend. My name is Russ, and I’m the primary writer and editor here at Bishops West. I’ve done a lot of things in my life, from working in a fish cannery in Alaska to teaching English in Taiwan to working as an accountant in Colorado. Through all of it, I’ve developed an appreciation for elegance, both in actions and results.

My personal mission:

Create Beauty and Elegance
Touched with Humor and Whimsy
Rooted in Faith and Integrity
Through Focus and Mastery

ChronicleTo that end, I want to share what I’ve learned over the years with you, in the hope that you’ll take that knowledge and create something amazing of your own. Express yourself through music, through art, through writing… whatever it is, create something beautiful and elegant to share with the world!

Be bold.

Be creative.

And have fun!
