Justin is also a celebrated writer/director, whose feature film debut, Hard Luck Love Song, stars Michael Dorman (Amazon’s Patriot), Sophia Bush, RZA, Dermot Mulroney, Brian Sacca, Melora Walters, and Oscar-nominated Eric Roberts. The script is based on “Just Like Old Times” by acclaimed singer/songwriter Todd Snider, and the film is Justin’s love letter to the gritty, Americana underbelly that he was immersed in growing up in Austin, Texas.


Justin studied film at NYU and worked in New York City until 1999. His experience in NYC included work with prominent companies like Miramax, GenArt, and Giaronomo Productions. In 1999 he returned to Austin, his hometown, accepting a position at XOPIX, where he quickly rose through the ranks, becoming Executive Producer of the commercial division. He went on to launch Synthetic in 2002 at the age of 25 with $500 of personal seed money. Synthetic has since grown into a world-class, award-winning commercial production company, with offices in Los Angeles, Austin, and New York City.


Justin's accolades include Closing Night Selection at the Gen Art Film Festival, SXSW ShortCase Winner, Addys, Tellys, Auroras, The Mobius, AICP Shortlist, and The Creative Summit awards, including several Best in Show recognitions. He is a multi-year finalist for the Austin Under 40 Awards, honoring professional excellence and commitment to community service in his hometown of Austin, Texas. He is also a member of the 2011 class of the EO Entrepreneurial Masters Program at MIT, an executive educational program designed to identify and bring together the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders.


Justin currently lives in Los Angeles and is involved in a number of entertainment projects including several feature films and television shows, which are in various stages of production, post-production, and development.
