A leopard can carry twice its body weight into a tree. Now if you hate reading this, at least you can walk away knowing you’ve learned something. Dustin has one goal, to crack that smile of yours. He is a very active & spontaneous individual, and lives for the daily excitement thrown into his world. He has a passion for bikes… Motorcycles, cycling to work, etc. Dustin grew up riding BMX bikes. Yes he is that good looking rider you saw upside down at the MN State Fair, Chicago Dew Tour, etc. The real world? You got it. 4 years at college, 5 years in IT at a high-performance distribution company, and recently instructing at a technical college. Dustin has also started a few businesses with a handful of partners to keep him entertained. http://itsgrice.com. Dustin has also recently released "BMX Grub", the first BMX specific iPhone application into the iTunes App Store.
