Meet Dustin Stout!

Awesome screen grab, I know...

A little while ago I announced bringing on a little more help to engage the community here with a few Community Leaders – one of them was a long-time tentblogger, Dustin Stout!

I wanted to give them each an opportunity to share a bit more about themselves – a virtual introduction of sorts! First up, Dustin!

Who Is Dustin W. Stout?

In a few words I’m a follower of Jesus, husband, father, film-enthusiast, graphic artist, social media addict, entrepreneur, and digital tentmaker. Now, I know what you’re saying, “that’s more than a few words, Dustin.” You’re right, but lets not get hung up on semantics.

What I’m all about:

I’m passionate about Jesus, and what he’s done in and through my life. His story is the greatest story ever told, and I get to be a part of it. That’s awesome. He’s also equipped me with the ability to tell others about that story so that they might receive the invitation to be a part of it as well. That is awesomer. For all you spelling Nazis out there, I used that last word purposefully. :)

My digital tentmaking:

I make a living helping individuals and brands craft and cultivate creative ideas and turn them into visual and verbal brilliance. From web design and graphic arts to blogging and social media strategy, I make things look good. Real good.

Some of my current projects:

My blog, dustn.tv, is my primary outlet for sharing what God is doing in and through me. I write about Christianity, Creativity, and Social Media. I started it as a way to equip, empower, and encourage God’s people to utilize the power of social media, supercharge their creativity, and take God’s message to more people with more effectiveness than ever before.

I am also the co-founder of GPlusTuts.com where my friend James and I (along with some great contributors) help people get the most out of Google+ with tutorials, tips, tricks, and the latest Google+ news. We’re huge fans of Google’s new social network, and believe it’s the next big thing shaping the future of social media.

So now that you know a little more about me, why not share a little bit about yourself! What do you and I have in common? Or better yet, where are we polar opposites?
