Aloha,

I was born on the island of Oahu in the autumn of 1999. I have lived all across the Pacific Islands and up and down the West Coast of the United States. My mother is a flight attendant, and that means moving around every so often and traveling the globe even more frequently. I find myself the happiest while immersing myself in other cultures, languages, and environments, as well as during the occasional nap.
I'm currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in UX/UI Design at the University of Washington. While here, I am a working member of the prestigious Washington Rowing program. I am also an active advocate for and board member of SAASHA, Student-Athletes Against Sexual Harassment & Assault. Post college I aspire to continue traveling the globe. I seek awesome adventures and learning opportunities and always leave behind thoughtful ideas and unforgettable smiles.
I discovered graphic design as a young teen. Since then, I have learned how to leverage media and interface to increase user-retention, accessibility, and, most importantly, aesthetic. Design is a tool as much as it is an art. Through thoughtful design, we can change the way humans think about everyday life. ​​​​​​​
Best regards,
Dustin​​​​​​​
