Justin began magic at the age of five, his first performance was sold out at age thirteen with tickets made out of cardboard for the local neighborhood. One of Justins passions among many as a child was reading magic books, he locked himself in his room reading greats such as Hugard and Braue’s Royal road to Card Magic, and J B Bobos Modern Coin Magic. Such books inspired Justin to use class, and originality when it came to close-up magic, and perhaps inspired Justin to write his internationally best selling e-book, locked in a room without cards.
At age 19 Justin was asked to work for Award Winning, Master Magician Lance Burton at the Monte Carlo and became one of his lead demonstrators, here Justin sharpened his skills of performance and perfection when it came to magic. Justin invents and creates his own magic from knuckle busting to simplicity in method. He has also been a consultant to some of the biggest names in magic. Andrew Gerard, a consultant for Criss Angels MindFreak, says this about Justin: "Justin uses presentation, skill, theatrics and a touch of class to bring about the most magical moment possible for any audience. This guy is smooth, really smooth"
