He has also worked as Lead Texture Painter at Industrial Light & Magic on Gore Verbinski's Oscar winning feature animation RANGO and as a senior texture painter with Digital Domain on Bryan Singer's Jack the Giant Slayer.

Justin's passion for film and texture painting has allowed him to pursue the projects that interest him while also affording him the opportunity to work for some of the best visual effects studios in the world. 

Justin specializes in a variety of texture styles from photo realistic to painterly for a wide range of feature film projects. Specifically, his expertise is in developing photo realistic textures for CG characters, animals, digital doubles, props and 3D set extensions for feature films.  Justin studied Visual Effects with a concentration in texture painting and lighting at the Savannah College of Art and Design. 

Justin began his career in 2006 where he landed his first role as a lighting technical director working at Rhythm & Hues Studios on the Academy Award Winning Animated Feature Happy Feet. However, his passion for textures landed him a gig as a texture painter on his second feature film, The Kingdom. From there Justin's career quickly sky-rocketed from being a part of a small texture team painting the textures for The Incredible Hulk, to painting the Owlship in Zack Snyder's Watchmen for The Moving Picture Company.

Currently Justin is based in Vancouver BC.
