After a varied career in IT and Project Management, Justin decided the corporate ladder was not quite his scene and he branched out on his own and started Jazz Design, a digital consultancy that specialises in providing creative thinking to develop innovative online and digital strategies and solutions.
Justin also has a strong interest in health and lifestyle and is a qualified nutritionist (non-practising), and is also currently training for a marathon and raising money for Cure Cancer Australia. Finding an ideal blend between the digital world, and health and lifestyle is the ultimate goal.
