Austin is a reformed tradesman who grew up in Simsbury, CT and made his way to the Pioneer Valley in search of good people, good beer, and good scenery. Having found all those things and more, his journey took him back to school to pursue a degree in data security. When he isn’t studying, he can be found with startling regularity at Pita Pocket in Northampton, or playing some music with friends. Austin’s favorite beer will probably change in six months, but for now it’s Six Point Jammer, or Fort Hill’s King Mark. Or Building 8’s The IPA. It’s too hard to choose!
