Keep Austin Reporting

Welcome to the life of storytelling by Austin Martinez, a word nerd and taco enthusiast from San Antonio, Texas!

Austin (she/her/ella) is an editorial fellow at LinkedIn, working on their daily news, audience, video, audio and global projects teams. She was previously an audience engagement intern at the Los Angeles Times’ metro desk and a podcast host for Moody College of Communication. Austin has also reported for The Daily Texan as a city and politics senior reporter and been a communications intern for the American G.I. Forum National Veterans Outreach Program.

When she’s not writing, Austin loves to travel with her familia, look for the best mac & cheese, and play with her unamused cat Stephanie Purry. Austin has been obsessed with words since she first discovered a newspaper as a baby. Now that she can read and write those words pretty well, she’s always looking for a new and unique story to share.
