    Co-Director/Fight Director

    After a brief stint studying Archaeology in college, Justin’s passion for the performing arts eventually took over, and he began his journey to become a working theatre and film artist. He went on to train at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London, England, and received his M.F.A. in Theatre from the Professional Theatre Training Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He's worked as an actor and director in regional theatre across the United States, and internationally as an actor in film and TV. He was a founding Managing Partner and producer with FallBack Plan Productions, who were involved with producing the successful feature films “Absentia” and “Oculus.” Justin is a proud member of SAG-AFTRA, Actor’s Equity Association, and is an Associate Member of The Stage Directors and Choreographers Society. Justin is grateful to the Monterey County arts community (and community at large) for welcoming New Canon Theatre Co. into their fold.
