Rap is my passion. People back home actually believe in me. It’s incredible. I love it. This world is really beautiful. One of my dreams is to inspire people. To motivate them to do something with their life. My main goal is to be myself as much as possible. All I am right now is just patient.” #theaustincollective #danieldavis #sxsw #rap #southaustin #metrobus http://bit.ly/1Ugvsrz
“I love getting up early, grabbing a coffee and donut and hopping on the bus for work. It’s my morning ritual.” Marco is a foreman in the Austin construction industry. “As long as Austin is expanding, I have job security.” Marco’s current project is a condo high rise downtown, which he’s been working on for a year or so. “I love what I do because I’m always learning. It’s like I get to go to school every day.” http://theaustincollective.org/

Tony is an entrepreneur, adventurer, outdoorsman and as he puts it, “all around random person.” Looking for a respite from his day job in finance, he was inspired to build his first wooden Stand Up Board in his South Austin garage. From this humble beginning he founded Jarvis Boards. “I needed a hobby so I went and bought a book on how to build wooden canoes. Three hundred hours later, my dog and I were paddling down Lady Bird Lake and I knew I was onto something. I began building paddle boards and it snowballed into my dream job.” #danieldavis #theaustincollective #specialeventrider #jarvisboards #dreamjob theaustincollective.org
After a life-changing experience at SXSW in 2011, Danny moved from Cincinnati to Austin to launch his startup. “I love the people of Austin and the accepting environment in this city. I got to know the city by riding my bike, but I often take the bus to go further and stay cool in the summer. My business is connecting people for the purpose of creating something new and making dreams come true. Our online network helps connect freelancers, entrepreneurs and investors with similar passions and endeavors. It’s a place where ideas go to grow. It’s about getting out in the community and spending time with people. #theaustincollective #danieldavis #busrider #northaustin #sxsw #austin http://bit.ly/1Ugvsrz

“When I bought the Texas Rowing Center in 2002, we just did rowing. Rowing is my passion, but it’s not a very good core business model—high expenditures and low income. We fixed that problem by adding paddling: first we added kayaks, then canoes and finally standup paddle boards (SUPs). Today we are the largest provider of SUP rentals in the world with over 300 boards. There are times when all 300 boards are on the river at one time!” #capmetro #realrider #billsallans #theaustincollective #passionproject #sup theaustincollective.org
