Justin got his start in acting through improv and theatre programs. He received training at the Black Box Acting, Acting Studio Chicago, Green Shirt Studio, The Second City, and Annoyance Theatre. This has allowed him to understand different viewpoints and capture his voice in each role from film, television, commercials, and much more.
Through his training at The Second City, Justin has extensive experience writing sketch comedy. He is an avid writer of short films and he continues to put his ideas to paper through his ever-growing portfolio. Justin is beginning to dabble in poetry. His next step will be to see how many haikus he can write without having to ask how many syllables there must be in order for it to actually be a haiku.
