Being able to wear what he wanted to work was life changing for Austin.
Austin describes his workspace as "absolute controlled chaos." He understands that the amount of items might not appeal to everyone, but he would consider the environment sterile without them.
While Austin mentions his "bright pant phase," his accessories are also used as a form of self-expression.
Austin enjoys his freedom to wear what makes him most comfortable, including his charcoal chunky sweater (on back of chair) for chilly interiors.
Austin works in Creative Circle's open environment with amazing downtown Dallas views.
Austin spends a lot of his day on the phone, and he usually has some item from his desktop in his hand.
"By the end of the day - you can tell exactly how productive I was by how clean my desktop is. If there’s nothing on there, it’s been a good day. It’s a visual to-do list that makes a lot more sense to me, rather than writing it down."
"I can literally affect this person’s life and make it better; put them in a better space or if they’re not working - put them to work. That’s awesome."
