Austin came to Braun & Butler in 2016 with a background in general maintenance and ranch work. He managed a 300 acre whitetail breeding operation, as well as ranch activities. In addition, he has worked in construction related trades his whole life. He learned a lot from his father, who is a very skilled carpenter. During high school, Austin picked up welding and fabrication, both of which have been passions of his ever since. While in college earning his Bachelor of Science in Animal Science at Texas A&M, he was able to coordinate a student organization of 600+ student participants in a feat of will power and engineering and was safety coordinator for the student bonfire. Braun & Butler Construction offered him the opportunity to further his knowledge and skill sets, as well as challenge him mentally. Austin was immediately drawn to the family orientated environment that Braun & Butler has throughout the company and with its customers. It was a natural fit. He is OSHA 30 qualified and has certifications in CPR, AED, and first aid. This Eagle Scout is also involved in the following organizations: NRA, ACTS, Ducks Unlimited, and AGC. Austin currently lives in Lampasas with his wife, Gracie Rocha, who is a Project Manager Assistant with Braun & Butler. They have 2 dogs, Crockett & Boone, and enjoy hunting, fishing, archery, travel, and anything outdoors. In addition, Austin is always cheering on his fellow Aggie alumni football and baseball players.
