Hi. My name's Rusty and I also go by Mishka. I'm a Pacific Northwest editor, writer and author. I was born in Canada, raised in California and now live in Seattle, Washington.

I'm pretty typical of my city and my region.  I am totally into nature and water. I'm a passionate sensualist and I love adventure and the quest for knowledge.

I'm considered open-minded within boundaries and generous as long as it's not presumed upon. I enjoy good conversation and in a battle of wits, I can take as good as I can give. Smiling. 

I've been a journalist most of my life, with time off for honest work at Boeing, fighting forest fires, pulling green chain in a lumber mill and working grapes and hops.  I am also a two-tour Navy combat vet.

I enjoy meeting people on here and sometimes from here to in person.

Here are important links to me:
