Before opening DugOut Design Studio, Dug led a multitude of high profile national and international Action Sports design projects, including, 21 unique X Games courses, the DC Embassy Barcelona, and Dew Tour's 2014/15 downhill street courses. These were completed while working with California Skateparks and California RampWorks. Dug returned to school for Industrial Design in 2012 and earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Art Institute of Portland in 2016. Just prior to graduating, he opened DugOut Design Studio in Portland, OR. It is here that he offers some of the most advanced software and technologies to bring clients' ideas for action sports facilities, events and equipment to fruition. Prior to CSP and CRW, Dug saw his passion through design, build and management of skateparks across IN, TX and FL. At the age of 17, his first project, Flounder Skatepark, won 3 state community awards inspiring surrounding cities to build skateparks of their own.
