After graduating with a BBA in General Business from the University of Georgia in 2005, Austin discovered that “peace begins with pause” with a stint at ScreamFree.

In late 2008, he pivoted into special education at a nearby elementary school for five years.

Nowadays, Austin is a Guest Advocate for Big Peach Running Co. and a stay-at-home father. His work has appeared in Fathom, Relevant, Unlocking the Bible, The Rebelution, and Morning by Morning.

Austin loves NBC sitcoms and Christopher Nolan films, and his marathon best is 3:12:26.
