Austin recently joined the Launch team as an Account Service intern for the summer. The recent Texas A & M grad hails from Nederland, Texas and is a self-proclaimed cajun food aficionado. To help you get to know him, we’ve asked him a few fun questions!
Q: If you were a toaster, what would you toast, and to what degree?
A: I would be a Wild Berry Pop-Tart cause they are delicious and notoriously hard to find in grocery stores. I would toast that sucker until it’s hot enough to burn the crap out of my mouth. Waiting for food to cool off just isn’t my style. #TimeIsPrecious
Q: There’s a zombie apocalypse. What do you grab?
A: Duct tape. Ever seen The Walking Dead?? Zombies cannot bite through duct tape sleeves! Plus duct tape has 7 million other uses so that might be beneficial.
Q: Favorite boy band?
A: Ed Sheeran. He is a boy and he is his own band. Don’t argue with this logic.
Q: If you could dis-invent one thing, what would it be?
A: Glitter is the bane of my existence. I don’t see the fun in something that gets everywhere and then is too small to clean up. *Writes letter to inventor of glitter* “I don’t like you.” – Austin
Q: If fat, calories, cholesterol, etc were not an issue, what two foods would you feast on?
A: I would feast on Texas Roadhouse rolls and chips and queso. I already do that now, but I would feel better about it if this hypothetical situation became a reality.
Q: What has been the highlight of your Launch internship so far?
A: It has been really cool seeing how everything comes together and is then pitched to the client. We obviously work hard to make the client happy and it’s a great feeling when they appreciate our work.
Q: What have you learned and what do you hope to learn in the future?
A: In just a few days at Launch I have learned so much about the little things that make a great agency run. I am excited to learn more about the advertising process and I am really excited to be working with so many different clients. Launch has given me the opportunity to work on stuff that actually matters and I think that’s pretty cool.
