About Austin S. Lin...
Austin grew up in Louisiana obsessed with tracking hurricanes, fighting fire ants, and proving adults wrong. When he left for the north, he thought he'd cure cancer through psychoneuro-immunology; instead, he ended up with a degree in psychology and a love of food and figuring things out.
His career travels have taken him through copywriting, photography, temping (he was "Temp of the Year 1993"), cooking for a couple with triplets, and a decade in technology working at such companies as Firefly, VideoGuide, D.E. Shaw, MathWorks, Yahoo!, Millennium Pharmaceuticals, Harvard University, and two presidential campaigns. He's served on the boards of Green Street Studios, Rebecca Stenn Company, The National Organization for Women, and the Harvard Women's Leadership Project Alumni Network.
During his next phase of life, Austin became a social worker, yoga teacher, and massage therapist splitting his time between seeing individuals and couples in psychotherapy (accepting Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, plans managed by UBH, and MassHealth/Medicare), a private massage practice, a daily yoga practice (hot yoga, acroyoga, and antigravity yoga), drinking Philz coffee, decluttering, and inventing.
Currently, Austin spends his time teaching and training acro, tech consulting, and inventing/manufacturing massage tools.
