Interns make everything more fun. Welcome to our three new New Media Summer Interns, helping with Content, A-Team Blogging and Now Playing Austin Promotion. You’ll see them out and about Austin this summer, so be sure to say hi. Also a shout out to our original Arts Associate Intern, Xaq Webb (President Rock Us Entertainment.)
I’ve lived in the Austin area for over 13 years, and I’m currently a senior communication studies major at Southwestern University. During the school year, my activities include working for the university’s newspaper, volunteering with Circle K International, and making late night Whataburger runs in search of brain power/french fries in the name of productivity/procrastination. Anytime of the year I love story time with friends and $2 margaritas at Applebee’s, live music shows at the Mohawk and Stubb’s, scarves, mix CDs, and impromptu rhythmically challenged dance-offs.
Mitchell is a rambunctious whipper-snapper born and bred outside of Austin, graduated in English from Texas State and, on the side, writes for Austin’s branch of The Deli Magazine. He loves grammar and diction and long walks on the beach and syntax and punctuation and playing with language, has favorite writers, enjoys a good beard, and is just a delight to be around. Mitchell fights crime, does creative things, and has been to the moon and back a few times. He says it’s “Okay if you’re into that sort of thing.”
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Hannah migrated over to Austin after long journeys traveling overseas in order to experience the mystic “live music capitol” and couldn’t be happier. When she’s not looking up new music and festivals to attend and volunteer at she can often be found drumming on her Kanjira, DJing, firespinning, hiking, swimming and exploring. An audiophile at heart, artist by craft and empath by nature, she looks forward to fully immersing herself in the people and sights and sounds that make up this great Texas city!
