Dunseth played college soccer at California State University, Fullerton, and was one of the first players to sign a Project-40 contract, doing so in 1997. He was assigned to the New England Revolution and spent the next four and a half seasons there, before being traded to the Miami Fusion midway through 2001. The Fusion was contracted next year, and Dunseth was taken by the Columbus Crew in the 2002 MLS Dispersal Draft and spent a year and a half there, before a trade to the Dallas Burn.
Dunseth left Major League Soccer for 2004, playing for Bodens BK in Sweden. He was elected Best Player of the Norrbotten County that season by a major newspaper. He then returned to MLS, signing with Real Salt Lake. He played a year with the club, before a trade to Chivas USA for Douglas Sequeira and Christian Jimenez. Before the 2006 season started, Dunseth was traded again, to the Los Angeles Galaxy for a draft pick. In process, he became the first MLS player to be on the roster of seven different teams (although he never played for Chivas). He was waived by the Galaxy in May 2006. In eight years of MLS, Dunseth scored five goals and six assists. He retired from professional soccer in July 2006.
He and his wife, Jade, married on August 2, 2006. The couple has two children.
