Dugan Ashley was born on September 5, 1985 in Columbia, Missouri. He was raised in Columbia, Missouri.
At a young age he developed a deep interest in expressive arts and firearms. By the age of thirteen, Ashley began performing live music in bars and music halls in Missouri. After high school in 2005, he enlisted in the US Army as a Combat Engineer and was stationed in Schweinfurt, Germany with the 9th Engineer Battalion. In 2006 he deployed to Ramadi, Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom as an engineer asset to 1–9 Infantry Regiment 2nd Infantry Division, who conducted various operations in East Ramadi including high-profile operations such as Operation Murfreesboro. In 2009 he was honorably discharged from the Army at the rank of Sergeant.
Following military service, Ashley went on to work in the firearms industry first in retail sales including opening his own gun store, then for firearms manufacturers as a representative. In late October 2012 he conceived the idea of CarniK Con and began initial writing and filming the following month.
Ashley was married in September 2008 and resides in Missouri along with his wife. He continues to write and direct film professionally and publishes videos on CarniK Con’s YouTube Channel.
End of CarniK Con
On March 27, 2015 Dugan Ashley officially announced via the CarniK Con Facebook page and his own personal page that all CarniK Con activity would cease immediately. Although no reason is specified for this decision, many fans of CarniK Con speculate it to be partly or entirely due to a recent diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, which he announced on August 21, 2014. Dugan Ashley, however, did state that he would be available for other work via his contact email.
