Auston grew up in Phoenix before escaping to Chicago in 2008. He worked as an engineer for six years before deciding to quit his office job and travel around the world with his husband. Since early 2012, they have traveled to nearly 50 countries across the globe and run the travel blog TwoBadTourists.
Auston currently works part-time as a freelance engineer and travel writer, while continuing to explore Europe and beyond from his home base in Madrid. His ridiculous organization, travel savvy and financial planning has helped provide the ability to travel indefinitely.
