1. Hello Austin. Welcome to Desnudo Magazine! How old are you, where are you from?
Thank you! I am 22 years old and from Louisville, Kentucky.
2. What is your heritage/ethnic background?
I am a mixture of white, black and apache
3. How did you get into modeling 
Every one kept telling me I needed to start modeling. So I got in contact with an agency in Los Angeles (Two Management), did a test shoot and the turn out was good resulting in me getting signed.
4. What is your favorite thing about your career?
My favorite thing is the people that I meet. Not every shoot has been cool but apart from those anomalies; I’ve met some amazing people.
5. What are you looking forward to in the coming months?
To see my experience and look progress to new heights.

6.Who inspires you to be better?
Every one who can’t be in the position I am inspires me to never take it for granted
7.What fictional place would you most like to go?
Atlantis 
8.What game or movie universe would you most like to live in?
Sword Art Online
9.What is your proudest accomplishment?
Putting aside my own doubts and others’ negativity to do what I want to do.
10.Music type you find yourself listening to most?
Alternative Rock / R&B / Nightcore
11.What song or artist do you like but rarely admit to liking?
I can’t really think of an exact song or artist. I usually don’t admit to liking chill step.
12.What music has most influenced you?
Alternative Rock

13. What do you listen to when you want to calm down?
Chill Step / R&B
14 What do you listen to, to hype you up?
Tee Grizzley
15.Can you play a musical instrument?
I’ve never really gave it a try. I played clarinet in elementary school. That counts right?
16.What do you think of Country music?
How do you feel about President Trump? Take the majority to that answer and that is my response. However, I might know a few Luke Bryan songs by heart
17. Do you listen to music in foreign languages?
The only music that I listen to in another language other than English, is Japanese
18.If you could make one rule that everyone had to follow, what rule would you make?
To critically think about what they want to say before they say it. It’s weird isn’t it? When people close their mouths just for a second they seem so much smarter. It would also teach patience; a skill that most of us lack
19.. Where do you see yourself in five years?
 I can’t really say. Closer to my long term goals and farther from demons trying to pull me back
20. What are your thoughts on nudity?
 It’s a part of life. It’s beauty and it’s disgust. It’s art and it’s vulnerable. It’s when we are most natural and most comfortable. It can be a sign of confidence but it can also be when we feel most defenseless. Context is key to anything.
