Justin started his career in the entertainment industry as a child actor at the age of six years young. He has been in various movies, TV shows, commercials and theater.

A three week tour in the UK as lead vocalist for hard rock band, KulpriT, effectively prompted Justin to focus on a full-time career in music.
In 2007, Justin established the indie-record label King George Records in 2007, the namesake of his father. In partnership with Universal Music group, King George Records released Justin’s debut album, “Behind These Eyes”. King George Records later closed, but now operates as Just Love Records.

Connecting with people is Justin's greatest joy. He has performed at many high schools to raise awareness about drug abuse. Additionally, he is an avid supporter of animal rights and hands out educational materials at his performances. Most recently, beginning to explore his feminist beliefs, Justin wistfully remarks, “I believe it will be women, actually girls, that will ultimately change our world for the better.”
