#MeetTheTeam - Austin Haltermann

As a musician for over 15 years and a recording engineer for 10, Austin has played hundreds of live shows with punk and hardcore bands and recorded guitar for dozens of releases.

He has a passion for making ideas come to life and for all things creative, so making the transition to audiobooks, film/TV, podcasts, and audio drama was a natural next step.
