Layne has taken an active role in Austin’s political and social scenes, being dubbed the “Queen on the Scene” by our very own Stephen Rice. Layne currently works for Homeaway, Inc., working closely with the executive team. He volunteers regularly with such organizations as the Octopus Club, AIDS Services of Austin, the Hill Country Ride for AIDS, and Equality Texas.
Growing up in Yoakum, Texas, Layne graduated from Yoakum High School, and continued his education at Texas State University in San Marcos. After working 11 years in the emergency department at local hospitals, he made his move into the non-profit world working for great organizations like Equality Texas and Project Transitions. Layne made his way back into the corporate scene and now uses his free time on the hike & bike trail running and hosting multiple charity events throughout the city.
