Austin is a 15 year Sophomore at Blue Springs High School. He enjoys reading, playing the piano, fishing, flying, video games and trying out new recipes. One of the things he said on his audition tape was, “Autism is a part of who I am, it is a gift from God”. People who know Austin know that he will pursue his dreams passionately. He loved being a part of the cast of “Just Like You – Autism” and has even signed up for a Video Production course this year at school. 

A favorite quote of Austin “What is weird – someone who is different, or someone who is different from you?”
