Austin Whittington

Pronouns: They/Them, He/Him

Character: Cassidy Shard

Editor

 

Austin’s skills and experience tend towards the written word and written code (in their day job as a computer scientist). In this case, though, their latent passions for voice acting and audio engineering are finally getting a chance to mature. When not working on this show, they really just want to be climbing things out in nature, with a side of trying not to be bad at video games. Austin currently lives in central Texas, with their two cats, Cam and Korra.
