In high school, Austin attended the New York Film Academy 3 Week Summer Course in Los Angeles, California, looking to be a film director.

In December 2014, Austin graduated from Cal State University Fullerton with a degree in Radio TV and Film. His primary educational focuses were in sound design and screenplay writing.
“Austin is certainly one of the funniest and most creative voice actors I’ve worked with. You give him some direction on his role and he’ll run with it until he can’t run anymore; then he’ll run even further!”
-Joshua Goring, Casting Director of Shadow Regiment and Master of Fortresses 2
“You only have to listen to understand the vocal diversity of Austin Matthews. While we usually employ him as an “announcer,” he still manages to vary style and delivery to suit the client’s copy. Austin is not a one read repertoire, that’s why he is requested so frequently. Listen and you’ll understand why I have no hesitation in recommending Austin for your project.”
-Neil Holmes, President, Voice Creative
