Austin Fracchia grew up loving to speak and write. He has become an avid do-it-yourselfer who enjoys outdoor activities that often require power tools and a dust mask. Whether it is building an oversized dog house or torquing down a large motor to a human-powered quadricycle, Austin enjoys a great home-related challenge.
Austin has covered many DIY and business topics for a variety of publications like Study.com, The Game of Nerds, Deep Nerd magazine, WikiHow, and authored his own communication book, The Public Speaking Apocalypse. Splitting his time between teaching and writing, he likes to focus on helping others express themselves in whatever medium they choose.
Austin has a bachelor's and master's degree in communication from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
