About Justin

A strong believer in live musicians, as well as blending the expanded pallet synths and unusual instruments can offer, Justin has pursued a career or musical diversity. First graduating from USC's Film Scoring Program, he's since worked on both large scale Theatrical Features (Cloud Atlas, I Frankenstien) and TV (HBO's The Newsroom, Netflix's Sense8), as well as quality independent films.

A few quick stats: Justin has just completed his 5th feature length film score, recently orchestrated 30 minutes of music for a 90 piece orchestra recorded at Abbey Road for the game ARK: Survival Evolved, and has scored over 40 short films. The art installation SuperBloom, showing at Happy Place in the LA Arts District until January 7th, 2018, is his first foray into non-media music.
