About The Author

Darrin Austin

The founder, CEO, and publisher of Jetset Magazine, Darrin Austin has been a visionary entrepreneur for decades. He started his first business at age 15 and since then has always instilled a firm, devoted work ethic to every business and investment opportunity he has set his sights on. For years he ran many successful construction and contracting companies and built a vast, diverse investment portfolio. But his dream was always to launch a massive media brand that embodied the kind of lifestyle he had worked so hard and been so fortunate enough to be able to live. Darrin founded Jetset in 2008 with the focus of creating the preeminent luxury lifestyle magazine. He wanted to start a publication that didn't just depict the affluent lifestyle, but actually spoke intuitively to those who really lived it. Unlike their competitors, Jetset was going to cater to directly to a niche audience of the wealthiest people in the world. Each issue would feature exclusives with celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and entrepreneurs like Elon Musk; first-hand insight into the most exclusive and exotic resorts, restaurants, automobiles, aircraft, watches, jewelry, and destinations; and exclusive business advice from luminaries like Daymond John (Shark Tank) and Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad). Darrin's dream became a reality, and soon Jetset established itself as the premier resource for those who live the good life. Nine years later, the brand has expanded to include hosting and co-sponsoring massive events across the globe, and today features a digital platform that includes a vast social media presence and one of the top 3,000 websites in America (, according to Alexa. Darrin still works just as tirelessly every day to ensure that the Jetset brand continues to embody his original vision and consistently put out the best possible content across the board. Darrin lives in Scottsdale with his wife, Jetset Editor-in-Chief Tami Austin, and two children. He is a devoted family man who spends most of his time away from the office with his loved ones. Whatever little time apart he has is spent pursuing his loves of cycling (he is the head of the esteemed Jetset Racing team), aviation, and motorsports — as well as visiting with countless admiring celebrities.
