Austin and his wife, Alessandra, are the proud parents of a lazy hound dog named Huckleberry and absolutely love spending time with friends and family. When they are not busy working in their garden or planning their next big holiday bash, Austin and Alessandra can usually be found enjoying delightfully bad movies and eating more chocolate than should be medically possible.
