Dustin ChristeanDustin Christean
Chef de Cuisine

I was born in Grants Pass, Oregon. My love for cooking came at an early age, but I never thought to make preparing food as a career. After years of being in a job that was ‘just a job’, I decided to tour Cascade Culinary Institute. I immediately decided to move to Bend to chase my dream of becoming a chef. I received my AAS in Culinary Arts in 2017 with highest honors.

When I am not in the kitchen, I enjoy time with my friends and family, camping, fishing, and vacations. It has been a great experience attending CCI and I am honored to be the Chef de Cuisine at Elevation Restaurant.
