Dustin Wray is a two-time Guinness World Record holder, Time Magazine Person of the Year (2006), and American Ninja Warrior veteran that was born and raised in New Braunfels, Texas. He attended Texas State University where he graduated cum laude with a degree in nothing relevant. From there, his 140 lb. stature naturally led him into the law enforcement world where he worked as a correction officer at a county jail for two and a half years. Despite leaving that job to join a technology company in August of 2011, he maintains his 100% shanking-free lifestyle.
In April 2015, he married a girl way too good for him in every measurable category. He took up photography after buying a Canon 70D with the Amazon gift cards that they received for their wedding. After years of volunteer work at Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo, he decided to combine his passion for photography and his passion for animals. He has learned everything he knows about photography from the internet.
In his spare time, he makes parody songs for work-related functions, tries to go viral online, enjoys mixed martial arts, spends as much time outdoors as possible, and generally does whatever it takes to bring about laughter. He considers his greatest success his pseudo-friendship with the late comedian Mitch Hedberg. Once he was the #1 trending story on Yahoo.com for a moment in time, beating out #2 Kim Kardashian. He has amassed an incredible 12 seconds of TV time in his American Ninja Warrior career. He also owns a 1981 Camaro Z28 that has been featured in four calendars, one video game, and one magazine.
