Kind words from folks I've worked with

  • Michael Shirley | Freelance Creative Director

    Austin is one of the most versatile and dedicated people I’ve ever worked with. Extremely curious and driven, yet down to earth and easy to work. He never fails to go beyond the brief, opening up new points of view that no one had even considered yet. He’s an impressive talent.

  • Brandan Jenkins | ACD at Leo Burnett

    I’ve worked with Austin at two different agencies now, and here’s what I’ve come to discover. Austin’s a mad scientist. I’m serious. He’s a phenom, mastering skills I can’t even begin to wrap my head around. When he’s not programming some amazing new experience for clients, he’s get his head buried in a book on how to program an even more amazing new experience for clients. I mean, look at his work. Where others see dead ends, Austin sees only possibilities.

    An extremely creative mind and astonishing technical prowess are hard to find in one person. Austin has both in spades. While working with him at Euro, he consistently delivered great concepts and flawless execution on every project we worked on. Austin is one of the smartest and most capable people I know, and any team he works on is destined for greatness.
