Since his childhood years in Pasadena, California, Russell Pyle showed a unique creative flair (Russell Pyle). From ages 9-14, he staged a carnival and circus show for all the kids in his neighborhood. Every year, it was the highlight of everyone’s summer.
Over time, Russell went on to become a daring and innovative theatrical set and lighting designer (Legacy). His award-winning work took him all over the world and fed his love of adventure, people and other cultures.
Russell was also a man of strong faith. Every year, he led mission teams and smuggled Bibles in to restricted countries. He was so fearless, it earned him the name “Indy,” short for Indiana Jones.
But as Russell tells it, his most challenging assignment proved to be winning the heart of the woman he loved. It became a daring quest, full of risks, setbacks and triumphs—the perfect adventure for a romantic hero like Russell. True to form, he pulled out all the stops and, ultimately, swept the lady of his dreams completely off her feet.
