About Justin

I'm an actor, comedian and screenwriter based in Melbourne, Australia. Been acting professionally since 1994 and have appeared in several TV shows, films and theatre such as Neighbours, Stingers, Loot. 2003 Best Actor RMIT Screen Comedy Award winner and VDL Best Supporting Actor Nominee. Have written and performed comedy for theatre restaurants, sketch comedy, internet articles, blogs, television, short films, feature films and standup.

Currently completing the Advanced Diploma of Professional Screenwriting at RMIT and have 4 feature scripts, a TV-Sitcom and animated Children's TV series pilots (and bibles), and a reality-based comedy web series bible under my belt. My feature script, 'Back Pocket', was accepted onto the 'Consider List' of the 2007 AAA Screenplay Contest in LA and wrote, produced and directed my own 30 minute sketch comedy pilot, 'The Wack Show' in 2006.

Presently, I'm collaborating on a 6 episode suspense thriller radio podcast drama that I hope to be taking into production later this year.
