As an educator, speaker and mover + shaker, Austin helps college students and organizations realize their potential daily.
As a former over-involved student leader at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, Austin understands first-hand the passion students have to make an impact on their campuses and ensure their organizations have a lasting legacy.
Originally from Tampa, Florida, Austin has been fortunate to work for and travel to college campuses around the country to share ways students can maximize their leadership potential. He has advised fraternities, sororities, programming boards, philanthropy groups and student organizations on how to be effective and work through difficulties no matter how big or small. He strongly believes our failures are opportunities for growth and can lead to success.
A brother of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, Austin believes strongly in the power of the fraternal experience. He is fortunate to not only volunteer for his own organization but also for the Sigma Kappa Sorority, Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women and Kappa Kappa Gamma and North-American Interfraternity Conference.
Austin also serves as Lead Facilitator for the Interactive Workshops division of CAMPUSPEAK, Inc., where he is responsible for developing curriculum, training and coaching facilitators and facilitating programming.

Austin resides in Raleigh, North Carolina where he serves as the Director of Student Involvement at William Peace University. He spends most of his free time with his rescue dog he named after a fraternity founder and playing in adult recreational kickball and dodgeball leagues (Yes, these really do exist)
