Austin debuted onstage in her first performance in kindergarten, but honed her craft through St. Petersburg Children’s Theatre, John Hopkins Middle School Theater Magnet and Pinellas County Center for the Arts at Gibbs High in her native Florida.
Stepping into a leading role came naturally to Austin as a preacher’s child. She grew up singing and assisting with worship productions. This launched her into active social justice leadership, from her early protest marches in her stroller to public speaking and leading workshops in diversity where she drew from her own experience as the daughter of a mixed-race family with same-sex parents.
Using her extensive technical theater experience, Austin launched her professional modeling career in 2010 with regional work in benefit runway shows, underwater dance, body painting, fitness modeling, fine art photography and video work. She continues to be sought after for studio modeling for professional artist and has a working relationship with Ringling College of Art & Design.
Austin's gifted, natural talent led her to being cast as the lead role CANDY in the feature film BIG TOP EVIL (2019) which garnered rave reviews for her performance and the opportunity to work with Iconic Horror star Bill Moseley. Most recently Austin stars as CHRYSTAL in CANNIBAL COMEDIAN (2020).
