When he’s not working… 

Running multiple businesses (and a couple of new ones launching soon) it’s fair to say Justin never has a dull moment!

Outside of work, Justin has two kids that keep him busy with one playing representative basketball and the other pursuing an academic career.

His hobbies include most things technology-related (he’s a closet nerd) as well as music (he can read music and is a pretty ordinary piano player) and he’s be trying to master a Reef Tank (with his own little nemo) for over 15 years.

You’ll often find him doing a workout or playing some basketball in between recovering from various sporting injuries so much so he’s convinced there will be a new ward named after him at the local hospital!

Justin is also the co-host of the GiddyUp Podcast with world champion Paralympian, Don Elgin.
