If you know me, you know I love the power of twitter and the impact it has to reach so many people. I love how it connects you to so many people. I came across Jax Austin on twitter and he is someone who you can tell has a passion for travel and food. He is also someone who has many followers who appreciate and support him on his goal: To have his own show on the Travel Channel.
Jax Austin has one goal which was inspired by his Uncle Dan and Jacques Cousteau. From an early age Jax learned the art of eating new foods from his Uncle Dan. His Uncle’s influence did more than feed him; it helped shape Jax into an adventurous off-road motorcyclist, competitive surfer, extreme snowboarder, and worldly Renaissance man.
Jax was also infatuated with Jacques Cousteau’s travels. In college Jax was part of the surf team at USC and that surfing talent gave him the opportunity to travel around the globe. Since then, Jax has vowed to travel as much as possible and eat bizarre foods. Anything from bull’s penis to live grasshoppers in Mexico. His passion for culture has taken him on adventurous trips worthy of re-writing travel books.
For the past 4 years this adventure traveler and eater has been shooting, editing, and producing his own content for the web with the goal of having a show on Travel Channel.
I love knowing stories like this. It is hard not to want to cheer on a guy like Jax. The best part is he is actually doing something towards that goal. He isn’t just tweeting and saying “hey give me a show”- he is creating it and showing it to the world. It’s easy to talk and say “I want to….” – the real part is actually doing what you want to accomplish.
If you enjoy watching Jax let TravelChannel know, heck let Esquire TV or Destination America know too. Help his man travel the world.
About the sandwich:
The Godmother consists of freshly baked Italian bread, genoa salami, mortadella, coppacola, ham, prosciutto, and provolone. Having never tried it and since Bay City Deli is in Santa Monica, CA. I knew my sandwich eating friend, Danger Sandwich would have eaten this Jax Austin favorite.
