Dustin James Leighton
"I'm a voice actor and aficionado of the arts. I'm about people. I'm about you.
My voice has resonated in some of the most sought after prime time slots on television from American Idol to the Super Bowl and is part of the Transformer's Franchise as the voice of Autobot Evac on Transformers: The Ride 3D.
As an on camera actor I've appeared on a handful of networks, had two leading roles in features distributed by Redbox and most recently portrayed Nick Andrews in Out of Focus, an official selection of Cannes 2013.
I also have a small production company called The Artist's Den, Inc, but we make independents, nothing competitive. I'm humbled to say that last year I accepted my first award as a director at the International Honolulu Film Awards for my debut feature, Just the Vampire Hunter. It's a cult film. I think you'd dig it.
Your Circle My Square is everything happening moment to moment in my life as a creative artist. I share in hopes to inspire, connect and grow.
I began this think tank March 20th, 2013. Thanks for stopping by!" - Dustin James Leighton
