We keep asking Austin to give us a bio but he never gets around to it, so, we are making one up until he does.
Austin was born to a nomadic family of sheepherders who traveled the Tibetan side of the Himalayas pandering their services as mountain guides to European tourists. As a small boy, Austin’s parents accepted an offer from a Spanish couple to purchase him for the equivalent of $87 whereby they took him to Madrid and raised him as their own teaching him the art of bullfighting as his adoptive father was a Matador.
Protesting the brutality against the animals, Austin would run away from home at the age of 16 where he joined a troupe of Portuguese merchant marines and spent the next 4 years traveling the Atlantic Ocean.
In a tragic turn of events, Austin would be the lone survivor rescued from the waters of the Bermuda Triangle when the freighter he was on capsized and then mysteriously disappeared. The US Coast Guard turn him over the Immigration officials where he was then sent to live in Tucson, Arizona awaiting deportation.
It was at that time that Austin wandered into Milo Fitness Factory desperate to find a place to call home. The Milo community took him in and became the family he never had.
In an agreement with Immigration authorities, Milo Fitness Factory agreed to employ Austin so that he could qualify for a work visa and avoid deportation.
In an unlikely twist of fate, Brittany Spears, who dropped in for a workout while vacationing at here in Tucson at Miraval, took pity upon Austin when she heard his story and petitioned Immigration authorities to have her assume legal guardian status.
