  • Austin has experimented in the kitchen since he was a child when his great grandmother taught him how to make icing and salad vinaigrettes from scratch.
  • He's lived in New York City for over a decade where he's explored the city's food scene from dive bars and high-end restaurants to food festivals and local grocery stores.
  • Austin has published his own food blog with original recipes since August 2022.


Austin is a freelance writer with five-plus years of editorial experience covering a range of topics for local newspapers and digital publications in New York City. He's always found a way to cover food when possible, including an interview with an amateur chef who figured out how to cook during the pandemic when his building shut off his gas. When he's not writing (or cooking!), he's probably exploring an art museum, trying a new restaurant, or watching TV.


Austin has a B.A. in media studies with a concentration in journalism from Hunter College.
