About Austin

A brief introductory video that sheds light on the tragic events that took place in Austin's life.
Often times I am asked where my nickname "C5Roller" comes from. If you follow me on any platform of social media you'll notice that either C5Roller, or a slight variation of the name, is my primary username. To be completely honest, I'm not even sure where the concept originated. Shortly after my accident it was explained to me that my spinal cord was severed at the C5 vertebrae. Seeing as how I now had to "roll" through life, it only seemed fitting to combine the two together. Boom! Just like that the name C5Roller was born. Since its creation it has turned into much more than just a nickname for me; it's a way of life!
