After Dusty graduated college he spent the early part of his career working for smaller manufacturing companies throughout Kansas and the surrounding Kansas City area in controller type roles eventually landing at Bushnell Outdoor Products as the North America Accounting Manager based in Overland Park, KS. During this time, Dusty married his wife Kim in 2000 and had two daughters, Mia (’02) and Peyton (’05). In 2007, Dusty joined Ingersoll Rand and moved to St. Louis (Kim’s stomping grounds) as the Operations Controller for their Hussmann St. Louis manufacturing location. During his time in St. Louis Dusty was on the BOD and a very active member for the local Knights of Columbus council serving as Treasurer for 3 years. In 2011, Ingersoll Rand divested the Hussmann business and Dusty took a promotion which involved moving to Mooresville, NC to work in the Davidson, NC global headquarter offices.

While at Shawnee Mission South High School (class 6A), Dusty received two varsity football letters as a linebacker, wide receiver, and punter and earned 1st Team All-Sun Country and 2nd Team All-Sunflower League. Dusty was also a three-year letter recipient in track & field and specialized in the 400M dash and qualified for State his Junior and Senior years and finished 2nd in Conference and 2nd in Regionals in the open 400 and 3rd in Regionals in the 4x400M relay. Dusty’s football honors as a punter caught the eye of many college football programs and ultimately earned him an academic and athletic scholarship to Benedictine College. Dusty lettered in football all 4 years at Benedictine College, earned all-conference honors 3 times, and broke a school record set in 1975 for average yards per punt (40.1) which still stands to this day. Dusty’s college coach believed in helping to grow and teach football which allowed him the opportunity to travel to Europe three consecutive summers and play football in France, Sweden, and Germany and even the opportunity to play in Olympic Stadium in Stockholm. After attending a couple of combines for some smaller professional football leagues did not come to fruition, Dusty decided it was time to hang up the cleats and start his career in Finance and Accounting.
