Austin Dienst is a digital native who has been living and working in the greater Seattle area for the last decade. After leaving Washington, DC in 2005, he and his wife Meghan have embraced all that Seattle has to offer. His passion for technology, computers, the internet, and social media are matched only by his passion for Pike Place Market and the diverse community of people who enjoy its wide array of sights, sounds, and services.
Austin currently works as the Director of Global Interactive Tools at Russell Investments, helping financial advisors, CIOs, and individual investors improve their financial security through a deeper level of understanding and digital engagement. Prior to Russell Investments, Austin has helped organizations like Amazon.com and U.S. News & World Report improve their digital experiences. He is a proud Davidson College alumnus and enjoys sharing boarding school stories from his time at Avon Old Farms.
When he’s not in front of a screen, you can find Austin playing soccer in the rain, skiing his way through the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, or hanging out at home with his wife and their cat, Mr. Sandwich.
