Dustin spent his childhood exploring the bass-rich orange grove
ponds that once blanketed the Central Florida landscape. At 16, he
headed east to hone his skills on redfish and sea trout in the famous
Mosquito Lagoon. After high school, he attended college at night
while working as an Environmental Specialist with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
He graduated with a B.S. Degree in Environmental Science and now works as a
Senior Environmental Engineer in the Electric Utility industry. Dustin’s
works have been published in numerous well known
Outdoor publications throughout Florida, Georgia, Texas, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
