It's hard to write about yourself. I wish I could look my self up on wikipedia, copy and paste.... but I cant. So here it goes. My name is Austin Pratt and I’m a musician, animator, and graphic designer. I’m also a huge apple and tech geek, annoying music nerd, and I’m pretty damn good in a kitchen. In my free time I like to travel, backpack, take pictures, and mess around with board sports.
As far as my professional life goes, well, I’ve done a lot of random things. I’ve worked for years on and off as a chef in a few restaurants and for a year I ran my own kitchen at a bar and grill in downtown Salt Lake City. I’ve worked in the outdoor/action sports industry (mostly snowboarding) for both the retailer and manufacturer. I’ve managed and built a small warehouse from the ground up and have done my fare share of shipping/receiving. I’ve hosted and marketed my own music events as well as many outdoor events including local snowboard movie premiers and the 2004 Liquid Force Trip Across America Chico, CA event. For a couple years I traveled around the country as a retail design installer and have opened dozens of retail locations. As more of a hobby, I have helped write/perform/record and book events in bands Juggernaut and Cop & a Criminal.
I currently do freelance graphic/web design and animation work for a few companies and also produce and do website design and maintenance for Top News Daily podcast for my father Joe Pratt who has worked in TV and radio for years.
