Justin received an honorable mention in a remix contest in September 2010, working with Underoath's hit single, Illuminator. His second film score for the award-winning movie, Once Upon A Time In Tampa (2011), received the highest internet vote, giving Justin his first film score award in November of 2011.

Justin has also written music for weddings, student recitals, documentaries, video games, and major theater trailers.
