Get to Know Austin!
What was your first job?
I’m sure this sounds odd to most people, but my first job was at a trout farm. People would come and fish in stocked ponds and pay by the pound to take the fish home. I spent most days running around untangling lines, unhooking fish, cleaning and preparing fish, or wrangling the customers.
What motivates you to work hard?
I’m a competitive guy and my parents instilled a strong work ethic in me from a young age. I believe that you can only count on what you can earn through hard work and I want to be amongst the best at whatever it is I do in life.
If you were a super-hero, what powers would you have?
How do you pick just one? Probably the ability to breathe underwater. Although, teleportation and the ability to manipulate time are enticing.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Helicopter pilot. It seems like an exciting job and requires high attention to detail and strong technical knowledge. Second choice would be a salvage diver or underwater welder.
What three items would you take with you on a deserted island?
An E-tool for digging, cutting, building shelter and fires, etc. A mask and snorkel for spearfishing and general outdoor enjoyment. A brick pizza oven which needs no explanation.
