Jon Cozart has been making YouTube videos since seventh grade, but the college senior is a total newbie to South by Southwest, despite living in Austin, Texas.
“I couldn’t bring myself to go before, just because I didn’t know what it was, and no one ever explained it to me,” Cozart told the Daily Dot during his first visit, where he was checking out panels and events before leaving town on vacation.
His video career started as a way to avoid writing papers in middle school. He’d offer to make videos instead, and he kept that up through high school.
