Managing Partner, Creation
Everyday events are cinematically filtered through Dustin’s mind like action/adventure epics, emotional tearjerkers, and cheesy 80’s montages. He can help take a vision from the fragmented, scatter-brained stage all the way to its beautiful finished form and has demonstrated this with local, regional, and national clients for the last several years.
Grasping the value of internet video and social media, Dustin built his first successful production company from scratch, pitching YouTube video strategy to small and large companies nationwide.
When he’s not creating he is hanging out with his new baby girl, Stella, going for walks with his beloved bulldog, Ruby, checking out the latest live music, collecting soundtracks on vinyl, golfing, plucking his guitar, or working in the garage.
