Dustin arrived at his place in the design world at Tipton Associates through a path that includes a Lego childhood, high school drafting, an interest in physics and astronomy, and eventually receiving a practical design/drafting degree.

He appreciates courageous works that place dark and shadow in dramatic contrast to architectural opposites of brightness, spaciousness and light. Another of our technology resources, Dustin is interested in parametric modeling as a resource for building technology and design.

Dustin’s affinity for Eastern philosophy and a good Star Wars novel (He has over 100), and his practice of martial arts, cooking and painting create an undercurrent in his work. He and his daughter also spend their free time watching science documentaries related to space.
