Ever since he was the lead anchor for his elementary school broadcasting club, Austin knew he had a love for journalism. Fast forward many years and a few degree changes later, you can now find Austin at the Grady School of Journalism and Mass Communication on the campus of the University of Georgia studying broadcast journalism and sports management.
After his elementary days, and puberty, Austin realized he was better off working behind the camera and set his career goal to become a live sports producer for any of the major sports television networks. He currently volunteers for Grady Newsource as a production assistant helping with camera work, audio, lighting and anything else they need him for.
Austin grew up in Fayette County, Georgia and attended Whitewater High School. When not in Athens, he calls Senoia, Georgia home. Austin has one older brother who was a graduate of Grady College in 2016, and now currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
During the summer, you can find Austin on the tarmac at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport parking, loading and unloading, airplanes for Delta Air Lines.
