Dwayne Burgess is the resident New Yorker here at Mixte bringing his Big Apple vibes to the sunny California team. Born and raised in neighborhoods from Harlem to Queens and Long Island, Dwayne had to adapt early to a fast paced and culturally diverse environment.
He drew on his background to connect with underprivileged youth while working at the nonprofit, Harlem Children’s Zone. Dwayne is a force for good and loves being a positive impact on others by sharing creative and active outlets that can significantly change a person’s life – like it did for him.
Dwayne later went on to spend time helping retail and ecommerce companies with their digital marketing, but he has joined Mixte to combine his professional skills with his passion of building community. Dwayne believes digital marketing is one of the best ways to share the important work nonprofit organizations do for their community and he is committed to sharing these important positive messages in creative ways to build and grow engagement.
He is a cyclist at heart and you can catch him shredding on a dirt trail somewhere far from home when not behind the computer.
