Austin was born in the small coastal town of Powell River, British Columbia. He grew up playing hockey and baseball, and hanging out in the strings sections of various musical groups. In 2014, he packed his bags and moved to Burnaby to study computer engineering at Simon Fraser University. Currently on co-op, he’ll be with 1QBit until December, and then return to school to complete his bachelor’s degree. Outside of work, Austin enjoys saving virtual galaxies from alien invaders in games like HALO, or attempting to carry his lane partner / roommate in League of Legends. He also manages to make time to get out on the ice and play hockey.
