I am many things...

I am Austin Santaniello Bucholtz. I am the product of immigrants, a proud Italian-American, a singer-songwriter, an activist, an environmentalist, an actor, a designer, a writer and director, and always changing. 

More directly, I am a Political Science and Environmental Sustainability student at Western Michigan University, the President of the WMU College Democrats, the Host of A Word With Austin, the Creative Director of the Michigan Federation of College Democrats, a member of the executive committees for both the Kalamazoo County Democratic Party and the Michigan 6th District Democratic Party. On the creative side, I have been self-releasing music for over seven years, writing, acting, and directing short films as part of FourFour Productions, have been a freelance graphic designer for multiple politicians and organizations, and am currently working on my first book. 

I am always propelled by a love and a passion to make a positive impact on the world and to help out wherever I can, and I hope to continue to do that for as long as I possibly can. 

Thanks for stopping by!
