Austin received minors in Political Science, and Multicultural Diversity & Inclusion. Through college, he worked at KOMU 8 News, the NBC affiliate, as an Anchor and Reporter in Columbia, Missouri.

When Austin is not working you can find him exploring Central Texas and finding the places that make Waco what it is! If you know any place to listen to live music, point him in the right direction! Austin is so excited to tell your stories and can't wait to see what is in store. If you see him in public, stop and say hi!
