I motivate audiences to build resilience and courage through my stories, insights, and original music.

Rusty spoke at the Inclusion Conference at the LA County Office of Education where there were participants from 31 districts throughout LA County. He shared his story of growing up fully included in his home, community, elementary to high school and college. He also treated us to a song he composed, which brought tears to some people in the audience. It was beautiful!
Rusty is professional, kind, and accommodating. He comes prepared with his songs memorized, and is fluent in both English and Spanish. Highly recommended!
