Dustin has been around heavy machinery for over 20 years. Straight from school he started work in construction installing seawalls in the Louisiana Bayou.
At 24 Dustin became a wildland firefighter for California Forest Service. As a hotshot he hiked into blazes often finding himself in remote locations for extended periods of time. As a self contained unit specializing in wildfire supression tactics, he'd use chainsaws and axes to cut fire breaks to quell intense wildfires often with little logistical support.
With a desire to try something new Dustin had no trouble answering Fred's SOS call. With the potential for millions in gold at McKinley Creek, Dustin is ready for a new adventure. When Dustin isn't washing rocks he disappears into the wilderness hiking, snowboarding and rock climbing.
