Austin is a Colorado native but grew up in central Virginia where he developed a passion for skiing. This brought him back to the mountains of Colorado and the University of Denver where he majored in both Public Policy and International Studies. During his time at the University of Denver he spent a quarter abroad studying culture and economics in Seville, Spain.
A former intern at The Starboard Group, Austin has also spent time working in Washington, D.C. with the National Republican Congressional Committee and a major Public Relations firm where he developed key relationships and knowledge of the American political system.
Austin returns to The Starboard Group as the Organizational Director for Heidi Ganahl’s campaign for CU Regent. When not in the office, you will find Austin on a pair of skis, waist deep in a river on the hunt for a trout or on a sporting clays course with his father, a competitive shooter.
