Justin began his journey as a musician learning brass and woodwinds in a classical and jazz setting. Hip hop compelled him to experiment with mixing and mashups. Punk and indie inspired him to pick up new instruments. After touring in bands around the globe, he became a founding member of Black Iris Music, a landing place for active musicians looking to enter into the commercial realm. He’d also become a session musician with Chad Hugo of the Neptunes on several projects. His work has earned Clios, Emmys, Golden Lions, Pencils, and other notable awards.
