Being the child of a band director, Justin’s love for music and performing sprouted at a very early age. Originally from Heflin, AL, he adopted the alto saxophone as his first instrument of choice and attended various local and regional honor bands throughout high school, receiving top placements. Justin went on to attend Jacksonville State University and join The Marching Southerners colorguard (‘06, ‘07). Afterwards, he performed with Eastern Shore Independent winterguard (‘10) based in Pensacola, FL. Justin most recently completed 5 consecutive seasons with Paramount World winterguard (‘14, ‘15, ‘16, ‘17, ‘18) based in Atlanta, GA. He is currently on staff with Paramount Winterguard, Spirit of Atlanta Drum Corps, and Southwind Drum Corps.
Justin is also currently the Marketing and Client Service Director at DANCE 411, part of 411 Productions LLC, an international dance and performing arts company based in Atlanta, GA. He also donates his time to their nonprofit wing, Mission For Movement, in an effort to make the performing arts accessible to all dreamers.
