However it isn’t about me, for it is what I can do…FOR YOU. This website was created in order to centralize the content I create, as well as give people a means to contact me directly.

Whether you came here to learn about the Modular Degree or Polymath Exercise; You came here for a purpose. It is my hope that I can inspire you to take a polymathic approach to your life.


Personally I have always dreamed of becoming an entrepreneur and changemaker. The world has a multitude of areas that it needs leaders with a polymathic mentality, and I hope to fill one of those spots. I aim to give others a pathway to do the same!

In my lifetime, “I will be a globally recognized Innovation Polymath. Driven to Innovate technology and ideology”.
-Dustin Miller, PolyInnovator, or Innovation Polymath

My Story

Growing up I always knew that I wanted to be a “businessman”, as I would say as a child. Even as I got older I would go as far to say that I would be a CEO! As the rise of technology changed my perspective my ideas grew wider. I knew that in order to achieve those childhood ambitions I would have to pursue my goals differently.
In 2011 I started my first blog, and took my first foreray into real content creation, not just a graphics design hobby. I was relatively consisent, however the quality still lacked its wow factor (Also SEO). Back in 2017 (even a bit earlier) I had started a project called the “United Living Construct”. In my eyes I saw this as my magnum opus, and perhaps decades down the line it will be. The U.L.C. acted as a catalyst for growth, and I voracious (to this day) research knowledge on how to grow a brand. On top of that learning I tried applying that knowledge too, and eventually I thought a personal brand would be more suitable.
A personal brand for those who are unaware is another way of saying an online reputation. It is the brand around myself, and what I create. PolyInnovator spawned off of the idea of a PolyULCian, someone of a multi-talented approach to innovation. Both names are just a modern version of a Polymath (think Leonardo Da Vinci #myhero).
PolyInnovator | Polymath of Innovation
I started working a year after I started blogging, and during my work years I always kept trying to do more. I started as a lifeguard, and worked my way into management and instructing. I found that teaching (anything) was something I am natural at doing. I love teaching, and I am quite skilled at it. This didactic lifestyle lead me to be the same way in the content I create as well.
My WHY is that I want to create PolyInnovator as a company to change education, and Self-Development. By doing that I will be able to create a worthy platform to create many innovations, and probably most of all the U.L.C. itself as a seastead. I hope by sharing this with you, that you can gain an understanding of why I truly care about your Self-Education!
Finally leading up to today, as that same teaching mentality has been infused with PolyInnovator Academy. An online learning platform, geared towards those who want to pursue their own path. More than just pursue, but to create it even. Creating that path is what inspired the Modular Degree, a self-learning endeavor made literally for everyone.
Made for everyone because the person making it, is the person who will be pursuing it. I just give you the tools!
