  Growing up in Florida, Justin spent much of his time at his father's fire station. His dad was a fourth generation firefighter and like his father, Justin had planned to follow in the family legacy. That is until a friend in college convinced him to audition for a local production of Eugene O'Neill's, 'Long Day's Journey Into Night'. Justin had done a few plays in school but never gave much thought to acting beyond that, so it came as a surprise when he was cast to play Edmund Tyrone. With a new found tenacity and endless passion for acting he quickly formed a tireless work ethic, switching his focus from fighting fires to studying theatre, much to the skepticism of his family.

  One of Justin's early film projects took him to Cape Town, South Africa for work on the award winning South African drama, ‘The Silent Fall’. Prepping for the film, Justin gained some much appreciated life experience when he spent three weeks training alongside HIV/AIDS patients in some of Cape Town's most prominent clinics and dangerous townships. That experience now continues to inform his humble approach to life and work. After returning from South Africa, Justin moved to New York where he began to build an impressive resume in television on the east coast before relocating to Los Angeles. Most recently Justin recurred on The CW's ‘The Vampire Diaries’, joined the 'Die Hard' franchise in Twentieth Century Fox's, ‘A Good Day To Die Hard’ and simultaneously joined the casts of the long running ABC soap, ‘General Hospital’, and the hit WGN historical drama, ‘Underground’.

  Justin is also an accomplished voice artist and television host. He first gained national attention while performing dual hosting duties between the nationally syndicated morning show ‘The Daily Buzz’ and the popular TLC design series ‘Designing Spaces’. From that recognition he was highly sought out by three separate Fortune 500 companies to crisscross the U.S. and Canada as their brand spokesperson. And if you listen closely, you may have heard him as the voice of your favorite electronics store, bank or fast food restaurant.

  Today Justin continues to split his time between hosting and acting, recently returning to the stage as the physically disabled and spiritually broken war soldier "Rory", in the nationally recognized and critically acclaimed WWII drama ‘Flying’ at The Tampa Rep. Justin can next be seen on the big screen co-starring alongside Shia LaBeouf and Gary Oldman in Dito Montiel's war drama ‘Man Down’.
