Hello, I'm Dustin. πŸ‘‹

Here is a quick intro - all about me.

Early Years

I was raised in rural eastern Utah (Roosevelt and Ballard). My parents were divorced when I was in 6th grade. I lived in Salt Lake City and went to Jr. High there (8th & 9th grade). I moved back to Roosevelt for High School.

Growing up, I was very much into sports. My dad coached football, wrestling, and baseball. My older brother and I often got to with him and the team on long bus trips.

In high school, I played football 🏈, basketball πŸ€, and baseball ⚾️. I ended my senior year by breaking my arm while pitching in the state tournament, Dave Dravecky style. πŸ˜¬πŸ’”

I recovered and shortly after this I served a 2-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in South Africa. πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦

Family & Career

When I returned home, I went to work for IHC Health Plans. They generously paid 80% of my tuition at Salt Lake Community College.

There, I met my beautiful wife Rachel. I continued to work and got to school. I later moved my career to 3M Health Information Systems and my schooling to Weber State University where I got my degree in Computer Information Systems. Also, thanks to 3M for their 100% tuition reimbursement program! πŸ’―

I've been fortunate to work for some great companies as you can see from my LinkedIn profile.

I currently live in northern Utah with my wife πŸ‘§πŸ» and 5 kids πŸ™ŽπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ™πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ™πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ™πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈπŸ™πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ and our dog 🐢. Now my sport of choice is pickleball!

Why Blog?

I've been blogging for many years. More than anything, I blog for myself. I can't tell you how often I have gone back to my own blog to remember how I did something in the past. It is also fun to have co-workers tell me they found an answer to a question on my blog. They say, "I should have just come asked you." My response is, "I would have just sent you to my blog."

I hope you find something useful for your work or home life here. Feel free to leave a comment or reach out to me on Twitter and say hello.
