Austin (aka DJ Phoenox) began dj’ing when he was 13 years old. His inspiration was one of Astro's own, DJ Roger Cruz, who DJ'd at Austin's birthday party. "Roger became a great mentor to me, and a friend." says Austin. Austin may be young but he has a lot of experience performing at school dances, private parties, graduations, weddings, & much more. He enjoys all kinds of events but he sites DJ'ing for the Combat Wounded Coalition as one of his favorites. If you are looking for an interactive DJ, Austin is your guy "I enjoy being interactive with the crowd and creating party games and dances." When he is not entertaining at parties, some of his favorite hobbies include soccer, skateboarding, & snow boarding. He also has a background in producing electronic music. When asked "Give us three things you are known for?" Austin replied, "I am known for getting a party started, extensive lighting, and (he added with a laugh) my 'great hair.' Note: The guys at Astro think his hair qualifies Austin to be "The 6th member of One Direction!"
