Hey, I’m Justin

I help software teams build amazing products by first building empathy for the customers they’re trying to serve.

I live in Melbourne, Australia with my wife, two daughters and two dogs named Gus and Meg.

I’ve had a few different titles (user experience designer, product manager, web developer), but I’m happiest playing at the intersection between all three. Working with Envato as Product Owner of their marketplaces (ThemeForest, CodeCanyon, GraphicRiver, etc) gives me an amazing place to do that.

Before Envato, there was NZX, Clear, RedBubble and cloud computing giant Joyent. Yep, I like marketplaces, passionate online communities and big problems to solve. More information is available on LinkedIn.

I’m also creator of the popular Formtastic plugin for Rails, among many other open source projects hosted on my Github profile.

You can follow me on Twitter and Dribbble.
