Born and raised in Arkansas, Dustin got his itch for the entertainment industry working at Missouri State University advising the student programming board. And then in 2000, he packed up his life, moved to DC, and enjoyed an amazing 22-year career with Keppler Speakers and ICM Speakers before joining Gotham in late 2022. When he’s not connecting you with world-renowned artists, business leaders, content creators, broadcasters, authors, journalists, and artisans, you will find him working with his family in their newly opened doggie ice cream bar and bakery – Salty Paws Chic’s Beach!
