Biographical and Professional Information

Dustin Renwick fills his life with writing and competing in any sports events he can find. Usually this choice involves running, but options like pickleball and the occasional limbo contest have made the list. His writing has appeared in publications such as ''The Washington Post'' and ''USA Triathlon'', and ''National Geographic'' once selected his photo as an editor’s pick. He earned his bachelor's degree in journalism from St. Ambrose University and his master's degree from the University of Missouri School of Journalism. In 2017, Renwick edited the book, ''Pens, Plows, & Gunpowder: The Collected Works of J.P. Irvine''.
