Design Staff , East Tennessee Community Design Center
Dustin moved from his home in West Virginia to Knoxville a decade ago (where has the time gone?) to get his architecture degree from UT. After graduating in 2014, he chose to stay here because of the culture of design and growth of downtown, which he found encouraging for a mid-sized city in his beloved Appalachian Mountains.
Life led him to his current employer, The East Tennessee Community Design Center - a non-profit helping make the region a better place through architecture and design - where he is on the design staff. He has been there now for nearly one year.
