A native of San Francisco, Justin first became interested in acting when he signed up for an acting class with a girl whom he had a crush on.

Justin continued his studies at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco.


At 13, Justin’s first television role was portraying the spoiled, bratty Alan Quatermaine Jr. on daytime’s “General Hospital.” He went on to star in the sitcom “Charles in Charge,” The Disney Channel’s “Perfect Harmony,” the sitcom “It Had to be You” opposite Faye Dunaway, The ABC Afterschool Special “Other Mothers,” the John Waters film “Serial Mom” with Kathleen Turner, and “Miracle at Midnight” opposite Mia Farrow and Sam Waterston. “Other Mothers” was nominated for seven Daytime Emmys with Justin’s portrayal of a son with lesbian parents awarding him an Emmy.


Continuing his success in television, Justin captured the role of the young journalist Jimmy Olsen in the tong-running series “Lois and Clark - The Adventures of Superman” starring Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher. Justin updated the quirky Jimmy character with a certain hip edge that only he could bring to the role.
