Austin grew up in Orchard Park, NY the third of five children. Within a busy household of sports and activities, Austin quickly garnered a high level of competitive spirit. He graduated from Orchard Park High School as a three-sport varsity captain in football, basketball, and lacrosse. After excelling in both accounting and advanced economics in high school, Austin developed a strong interest to pursue a business-related degree in college.
Austin continued his educational career at Providence College where he majored in Finance and minored in Economics. He also participated as a two-time captain on the Providence College Men’s Lacrosse Team. As a captain and student athlete, Austin continued to develop qualities in leadership, teamwork, mental toughness, and time management. Upon receiving a Bachelor of Science from Providence in May 2017, Austin earned his MBA from the Providence College School of Business in May 2018.
Apart from playing sports, Austin saw his summer breaks as an opportunity to learn more about finance and investments. He spent time interning in financial advisory, corporate finance, sales and trading and at a hedge fund in NYC. Austin’s eyes were truly opened to the capital markets after a summer analyst internship with Citigroup. With a strong passion for technology and a background in investments, Austin joined Volition Capital as an analyst in July 2018.
In his free time, Austin loves to run, hike, play guitar and hang with family and friends.
