About Dustin Pope

CONTRIBUTOR. Texas born and raised, New York refined, Brooklyn resident. In many ways Dustin can be defined by that sentence. Dustin grew up on BBQ, football, and Southern hospitality. As great as those things are, Dustin aspired to see the world and found himself at The King's College in New York City after high school where he was introduced to a variety of new cultures and fell in love with the city. Today he lives in Brooklyn, where he enjoy kicking back with the locals over a nice craft brew but can still escape out to the hustle of Manhattan whenever he pleases. His favorite charity is the National Down Syndrome Society.
