Austin Powers was born twelve years before the movie came out, but has somehow survived a two-decade barrage of movie-related jokes. (Don’t worry – he actually loves the film).
From his initial position as a local Spanish and Social studies teacher, Austin’s career has gone in a variety of unexpected directions. He’s been a news reporter in Chile, a Business English teacher at a university in Spain, a program manager for Latin America & the Caribbean at UAlbany, a lead international development strategist at RPI, and even a radio DJ.
Austin’s passion for marketing and creative comes from a deep interest in how effective branding affects the human psyche. As a Senior Account Executive, he helps to ensure projects not only remain on-time and on-budget, but help to break the mold of traditional promotional schemes to help clients reach new levels of success.
Outside of the office, you can find Austin skiing deep powder on the West Coast, attempting to start circle pits at local punk shows, and yelling loudly at the Buffalo Bills. He’s also re-hiking the 46 Adirondack high peaks, struggling to become fluent in Portuguese, and aiming to win championships with his super-serious dodgeball team. Grr, baby – very grr.
