Justin loves discovering new sounds and all the infinite ways of playing and making things with them. He builds instruments, records things and makes music. He started out playing pots and pans in the kitchen and hasn’t really stopped – his school reports were invariably dotted with comments like, ‘lovely student but at times noisy.’
Eventually, by some stroke of luck, Justin found his way to the Victorian College of the Arts in 1998 to study as a percussionist. Following this, he has enjoyed working as a sound designer, sound engineer, musician, performer, composer, and teacher.
Since 2005 he has been involved in the development and performance of many Polyglot shows including Tangle and Manguri Wiltja. Other recent work for children includes Sound Capsule with Aviva Endean (2021) and Wayfinders with Jess Wilson (2021). Justin also performs in many bands including Emma Donovan and The Putbacks.
