Austen began volunteering with HeadCount after his good buddy and fellow rager, Chris Mocharla, came back from his internship at HQ in New York with rave reviews. He currently lives in Austin, TX and is deeply involved in the local grassroots music scene.
Austen graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.A. in Government and a focus on Politics, Law and Social Justice. He is also a staff writer for the jam and electronic music blog, Headstash. When not seeing or organizing live music events, Austen can be found kayaking, tossing the Frisbee, swimming at Barton Springs or camping-basically anything to keep out of the concrete jungle required by his 9 to 5.
