Dustin Williams - Digital Media Manager


Dustin is a military-trained, jack-of-all-trades digital media professional. The Alabama native enlisted in the Coast Guard in 2011 and rated as a public affairs specialist. He served on active duty for six years and is currently a second class petty officer in the reserves. He joined the Vox Optima team in December 2018 as videography support and digital signage content manager. His military experience includes media/public relations, crisis communications, photojournalism, and videography.

As a Coast Guardsman, Dustin flexed these skills across five hurricanes, dozens of high-profile of search and rescue cases, multiple nationally covered oil and HAZMAT incidents. He also had the honor of providing public affairs and visual imagery mission support for Customs and Border Protection, FEMA, Texas Air National Guard, U.S. Navy, Secret Service, TSA, NASA, and a host of other state and federal agencies.

He is extremely excited to be supporting the Navy’s missions at NAVSEA. Dustin is most looking forward to the professional growth potential from the wealth of knowledge and skill-building available with the team there.

He is a two-time Thomas Edison State University alumnus holding an associate’s in environmental safety and security, a bachelor’s in communications, and is currently studying for a master’s in professional communications.

Dustin lives in Maryland with his active-duty Navy wife, three-year-old daughter, and one-year-old twin boys. In his spare time, you’ll find him grilling on his porch or fine-tuning his Spotify playlists.
