After years of making viral, award-winning short films that were selected at film festivals worldwide, Justin made his feature debut with the hit horror film, “Countdown.” Made with a budget of $6 million, the film (which was based on a short film he made) exceeded all expectations, grossing over $60 million worldwide.
Born and raised just outside of Boston, Justin’s love of cinema began at the movie theater where his mother worked tearing tickets. He spent countless hours of his childhood there, daydreaming about making his own movies one day. His goal is to create that same kind of original, genre-bending popcorn entertainment that he grew up watching in the 80’s and 90's.
Justin holds a degree in Film Production from Full Sail University, where he honed his technical skills and deepened his understanding of the art of filmmaking. He is currently in development on two films and has just completed his first novel.
