We are impressed with some of the cool puzzles and map panels that Pete has been making and reached out to ask him a few questions on his work.

1.) Who are you, where are you from and what do you do?

I’m Pete Ruckelshaus, I’m from Collegeville, PA, and I’m a middle school teacher.

2.) What lasers and software do you work with?

Xtool D1 10W, Lightburn

3.) What do you love about maps?

I’ve loved maps ever since I was a kid (which is a while ago). We used to get National Geographic magazine, and they would come with these great fold-out maps that I would hang on my wall and think about all of the places that I could travel to…and that’s the great thing about maps.

Not only can they show you where you’ve been, they can also show you where you’re going.
