Contact Information


Dustin arrived at his place in the design world at Tipton Associates through a diverse path that included high school drafting, courses in art and sculpture as well as physics and astronomy in college, and ultimately a practical computer-aided design/drafting degree.

He appreciates courageous works that place dark and shadow in dramatic contrast to the common architectural opposite of light. Dustin strives to stay current with digital modeling and BIM technologies as tools for building design and performance. He is also involved with CSI and is an office asset for specification writing and development, with experience in various project types including education, wellness, civic, and dining. Dustin’s affinity for sci-fi/fantasy novels, cooking, and creating art generate a profound undercurrent in his daily work.
