Dustin is a Greenville native and attended high school at Wade Hampton. After college, Dustin returned to Greenville and joined his family’s concrete construction business and eventually purchased that business from his family in 2010. In 2015, Dustin decided to sell the business and focus on a “fun” business that his own family would enjoy. Dustin became the very first franchisee for Big Air in 2016 with the Spartanburg location. It wasn’t long until Dustin began plans to open his second location that would be in Greenville. Then in 2019 he opened his third location in Branson, MO. Dustin is also the Regional Developer for Big Air for the state of SC where another Big Air opened in Myrtle Beach in 2020 and another three locations are in various stages of development. As a member of the C12 Group, Dustin was awarded Member of the Year in 2012 and 2016 and he was recognized as Innovator of the Year in 2018.

Dustin’s wife, Tabatha is active in the business along with their daughter, Skylar as a General Manager, their daughter, Rylie as the Street Team Coordinator, and Dustin’s sister, Caroline as the Marketing Director. Dustin’s son, AJ isn’t quite old enough to work but he the unofficial tester for all the fun attractions.
You may have seen Dustin’s creativity outside of Big Air if you have ever toured around Greenville enjoying Christmas light displays.

With nearly 1 million lights synchronized to music, Dustin’s light show was featured on ABC’s ‘Great Christmas Light Fight’ in season 2. Thousands of families come to see the display every year and Dustin loves offering this display as a free gift to the community.
