Prior to joining the City Council, Justin was an active volunteer in the community, focusing his efforts with the Bay Area Crisis Nursery, Walnut Creek on Ice, Diablo View Rotary, and Winter Nights, among others. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the Leadership Contra Costa Alumni Association, a past Vice President. His service on the Walnut Creek City Council is also on a volunteer basis, as he has chosen to serve without pay.  

On the City Council, Justiin has been a vocal advocate to drive fundamental change and improve transparency. He has been a leading voice on the topics of public safety, long-term fiscal health, government transparency, protecting our children, and encouraging younger generations of Walnut Creek citizens to get involved in government. He has served on many of the Council’s sub-committees, including Public Safety, Public Education, Community Choice Aggregation, Housing and Community Development, and The West Downtown Specific Plan.  

Outside of volunteering, Justin has established a successful career as an information technology professional. Justin started his career at the City of Walnut Creek as a Computer Technician, in 1997.  He currently serves as a technology executive in the technology travel industry in San Francisco. Prior to his current role he has served with multiple technology startups both prior to and post-IPO.   

Justin was born and raised in the Bay Area, first in the North Bay and then attended school in Danville and Alamo. He earned his BA in Business Administration from California State University, East Bay. He and his wife, Melissa, moved to Walnut Creek in 1998 and are now raising their two children.
