In addition to cutting hair at Slim's, Dean also works as a customer service agent at Wal-Mart. It is evident from the jobs that he works that he likes to help people. If you see him and he doesn’t know how he knows you, don’t be offended. Just be glad he recognizes you.

Dean loves fishing and being outdoors in general. His favorite vacation spot is in Manitowish Waters, WI. If he could find 3 jobs up there, he would probably move... He collects antique boat motors, shaving brushes, shaving cups, and taxidermy. There's a funny story about a lobster dinner that came from Dean trying to teach himself to become a taxidermist. Dean’s favorite hairstyle to cut is the flat top.

Dean can dish it as well as he can take it. Every day Dean is a good sport as Slim rips on him. He occasionally gets Slim with a good comeback, kinda of like when Spider told Tommy to go... ah, you know what Spider told Tommy to do...

Last, but most importantly... Dean is the only barber at Slim's who gives hot shaves.
