Austin was born and raised in the Santa Barbara, California area. His family now lives in Buellton, California where he graduated and played baseball at Santa Ynez HS. Austin then attended Westmont College where he graduated in May with a Bachelor’s Degree in Religious Studies. Through this time God has been directing Austin toward sport ministry where he can combine his love for baseball and his heart to tell others about the good news of Jesus. By God’s timing this has turned into the opportunity to work as an intern with Athletes in Action’s baseball department in Xenia, Ohio for the upcoming year. Austin is thankful for this new opportunity, and excited to be a part of the mission of building up men of character and making disciples of all nations.
