Employee Spotlight

Employee Spotlight: Dustin Pape


Q: What is your background?
A: I am a Signals Intelligence Marine veteran and a current English undergraduate student. I spent two-and-a-half years in training, most of which required learning a new language, and the other two years as a SIGINT operator/analyst in Camp Pendleton.

Q: What are your hobbies?
A: I enjoy hiking, camping, skiing, looking for the next best Irish pub, and I absolutely love writing! I’ve been writing for twelve years, and I look forward to writing much more after my collegiate studies.

Q: If you had an extra hour every day, what would you do?
A: I would do one of two things: write more (which I really need to do), or I would dedicate that extra hour to more studying.

Q: Who did you want to be when you were a kid?
A: My buddy and I had a plan to join the Marines after high school when we were only in second grade. My ideas continued to jump around thereafter, from joining a different branch to becoming an architect to working in agriculture.

Q: If you could know the total and absolute truth to one question, what question would it be?
A: Will we ever truly reach world peace?

Q: What is something that not many people know about you?
A: For the three years I was in FFA in high school, I was a three-time District Agronomy champion, competed with my Agronomy team at National Convention in Louisville, KY after winning the State competition, and achieved MT State Agronomy champion.

Q: If computers didn’t exist, what would you want your job to be?
A: I’d be a full-time writer and scholar. There aren’t many things I find more soothing than a pen gliding across the paper.
