This is what I’m up to… now.


I currently work with Pee-wee Herman, Boing Boing, and Children’s Fairyland. Yes, really!


I publish an inbox zine (a term I coined; much better than “e-newsletter,” right?) called Rusty’s Electric Dreams. It’s for positive deviants and the people who love them (probably you). It’s now in its seventh year. People like it.

[5/28/21] Kevin Kelly and Mark Frauenfelder invited me to be a guest on their Cool Tools podcast! I talk about how researching my ancestry changed my life, my glow-in-the-dark water bottle, all the things I make with my new-ish Cricut (pronounced: cricket), and how I get off a Zoom call fast.

[3/11/21] Rusty’s Electric Dreams was added to CreativeMornings‘ “most anticipated newsletters” list.

[3/19/21] The first season of The Real World is part of my pop culture DNA. Pleased as punch to go through the New York reunion episode with the TV Show Show podcast again.


I’m a little obsessed with my new VR rig.

[9/23/20] I dropped 50.5 bits of hard-earned wisdom on my 50th birthday.  You’re welcome.

[12/20/20] I got myself a Cricut Maker, which is essentially a home die-cutting machine. It’s super cool. It allows me to get ideas out of my head and into my hands.
