Austin's first introduction to the world of film was at the age of five in Tokyo, Japan, where he was cast in a reoccuring role for a NHK drama series. In his teens, he began making his own short films and it became obvious that his place was behind the camera, not in front of it. 

Austin made his directorial debut in 2016 with a feature film entitled, "Secondhand Hearts", which has played in various festivals around the world. 

His short film "Juventud" is currently in the festival circuit having played at Comic Con Int'l Film Festival as well as Hawai'i Int'l Film Festival.
