While technically a Buckeye, Austin considers himself a Hoosier since moving to South Bend, Indiana when he was 8 years old. His parents homeschooled him, along with his three siblings, from Kindergarten through his senior year of high school. During high school, Austin was heavily involved in Bethel University’s Theater Department, which helped him develop his emotional storytelling skills. He was in six productions, “Anne of Green Gables”, “Shadowlands”, “Oklahoma!”, “Pericles”, “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Fiddler on the Roof”.

After high school, Austin earned an Associate of Applied Science in Visual Communication with a focus on Film from Ivy Tech Community College and graduated summa cum laude. Austin specializes in video production, a field that was a natural fit for him since his mother’s favorite hobby is photography. He also works as the video producer at Christian Center Church where he creates promotional social media content, announcement videos, narrative short films, and story driven documentary style content. He has also done spec commercials and multiple large commercial shoots for clients like RV Business Magazine and Homeworks Construction. 

Austin is a self-proclaimed camera nerd who enjoys tinkering with his camera equipment, learning more about the gear and how to make the most of it on his next project. He is drawn to projects that allow him to use every aspect of filming, like lighting, color grading, and sound design to create content that’s unique, engaging, and something that truly aligns with the client’s brand identity.

Hobbies: Photography, theater, video games, and drinking coffee. 

Something most people don’t know about you: Austin is actually incredibly introverted. After a social engagement, he often finds a good hiding spot and watches a movie or plays a video game by himself and with a cup of coffee, of course.
