Bio, Experience & Portfolio Website
Hello, I’m Dustin. Thanks for visiting Dustin Templeton (.org)
I built this website for potential clients, employers, partners and the occasional stalkers who want to learn more about my professional life.
So, feel free to scroll down and click around. If you’re short on time and want to jump straight to examples of my work, click the button below.
I have over 20 years of experience in the areas of Apple IT, music, live events, sales & sales management, branding, marketing and advertising.

Throughout my career, I’ve managed relationships with companies such as Apple, United Airlines, Brookfield Zoo, Sanford Corp, Live Nation, AEG and countless small businesses. In addition, I’ve supported and consulted for live concert tours featuring Britney Spears, Kanye West, Bon Jovi, Tim McGraw, Roger Waters, Black Eyed Peas and many, many more.

What I’ve Been up to Lately
Lately, I’ve been spending my time helping other small business owners tell their stories to new audiences, win new customers and provide them with exceptional experiences so they keep coming back. The process is commonly referred to as brand management or brand development consulting.
Think of it this way:
A brand is the internal story the public tells themselves when they think about a person or company.
Brand development is a series of actions the person or company takes in an effort to positively influence that story before it’s ever told.
That’s where I come in. There’s actually quite a bit more to it, but I think you’ll have a pretty good understanding after reading this website.
Detailed work experience, life experience and my thoughts on the current state of the world.
