Steve R Austin Steve R Austin was born just off of Minot AFB in Minot, ND. After just a few months, he and his family began a tumultuous span of moving wherever the USAF needed them to be, until they landed for the long term in Brandon, FL, a suburb of Tampa. It was there that he found his calling. His experience acting began in early elementary school, when he started performing on stage at his church. He continued performing as lead or featured characters through high school, and then continued his studies at Theatre USF, where he picked up experience performing in everything from Shakespeare to experimental theatre and dance. He also scored some local film roles and started to build experience on set as an extra. He also gained extensive training in staged combat, including hand-to-hand, sword combat and tumbling.

After graduating with his bachelor's degree he continued to perform on stage in local theatre, adding musical theatre to his repertoire and applying his theatre experience in various forms of employment up to and including his time as a high school theatre teacher.
