For 20 adventure-filled years Justin has immersed himself in the swirling waters of production – working on TVCs, Documentaries, TV Series, Feature Films, and The Crocodile Hunter phenomenon. Justin’s career kicked off at The Best Picture Show where he learnt the art of television production from some of the best in the business. Ironically a beer commercial led to the very first Crocodile Hunter documentary and for the next several years Justin travelled to every corner of the planet shooting Steve Irwin. Justin’s strength is his ability to get the job done no matter what. No shot is too difficult, no request is too outrageous, no amount of fun is too much and no result is unachievable.  He’s sprinkled his magic over thousands of hours of top-drawer television: working as producer, production manager, 1st AD, cameraman, underwater photographer and even crocodile wrangler! Justin has produced award winning international documentaries for US networks NBC, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and the Travel Channel. In Australia he’s produced TV series with Imagination Entertainment for Network Seven, Sunshine Beach Pictures for Fox 8 and Eyeworks for CI Network. Now one half of Play TV, Justin has a beautiful, understanding wife,  three beautiful daughters and a sausage dog.
