LIVE BREATHE BLEED
Based in NYC, I'm a Community Editor for BuzzFeed as well as a creative consultant, writer, video producer photographer, singer/songwriter, social media manager, and more. My passion—at its deepest core—is creating.
So... what can I create for you?
What does A mean to me?
I am many things.
A person. A son. A boyfriend. A brother. A friend. An artist.
A writer. A businessman. A singer. A capturer of moments.
My name is Austin Allie, and I am 25-years-old. I live in New York City and spend most of my time in my own head, lost in my imagination, curiously searching for what comes next.
Originally from Texas, I was born in the Fort Worth area. When I was five, I moved to a small, Texas town called Brenham where I spent the rest of my childhood/adolescence. That's also the place where they make Blue Bell Ice Cream, a favorite of mine.
I graduated from the University of Texas with a B.A. in Rhetoric and Writing and a minor in Creative Writing. Since my graduation, I have worked many jobs: Content Strategist, Associate Producer, Creative Consultant, Social Media Manager, Production Assistant, Videographer, Creative Director, etc.
As far as my professional career is concerned, I am a firm disbeliever in the phrase, "Jack of all trades. Master of none."
I wear many hats and—I must say—all of them look great on me. Creating is my passion. It's what I do, and I do it well.
For you, I only have one question...
WHAT CAN I CREATE FOR YOU?
COMMUNITY EDITOR AT BUZZFEED
At BuzzFeed, I review, edit, and promote user-generated posts. I also have a hand in community moderation, escalating flagged posts and forums. I also help identify formats, frames, and trends coming from the Community to ensure that our users are seeing the content they want to see. I also generate my own engaging content which receive an average of 100K+ views.
Your business is important, and I supply the creative concepts and state-of-the-art ideas to make sure people know that. By applying my creative skills, I can make sure you spend more time on what matters to you while I make your business look amazing by introducing a fully branded style guide that will elevate your business above all the rest.
I have incredibly diverse experiences in writing ranging from personal creative works such as fiction, poetry, and script writing to professional writing for print and digital content. Check out some of my creative works here.
One of my passions is music, and I love performing. I primarily consider myself a dark pop artist, but I'm able to write and sing other various genres. I have roots as a theatre actor and have professional voice training to back up my songwriting abilities. If you want to hear some of my music, please check it out.
When it comes to video production, I am well versed in videography, direction, editing, and more. While I make a wide array of video content, music videos are my favorite thing to create. Check out some of my videos here.
I have worked as a professional photographer and would love to shoot your next event! View some of my photos here.
BUSINESS INQUIRY? WANT TO SEE MY PORTFOLIO?
AXEL ST. PATIENCE
When I started to make music and perform live, I realized that I was developing a character that I could step into and express myself in ways that I couldn't as just Austin. Thus, Axel St. Patience was born. He's a dark-pop artist with music to make you dance and lyrics to make you cry. Interested in booking him for a gig or other business inquiries? Send me a message, and I'll be sure to pass it along to him.
In addition to my own original music that I release, I also write songs for other artists. This includes work as a co-writer, topliner, lyricist, and even a voice-for-hire. If you're in need of one or more of these services, please feel free to reach out to me here. I love collaborating and would be thrilled to see what we can create together. I am based in New York and am willing to collab in person or remotely.
