Upon graduation, he attended and received his Masters of Architecture degree from the University of Southern California (USC). His notable accomplishments are leading the design team for an architectural installation at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Shanghai, China, and his role as project manager for solar net-zero homes, an initiative known as "Solar Decathlon" under the direction of the U.S. Department of Energy. He has also been a designer for an architectural research and development firm designing smart zero-energy building facade systems. Justin is a current faculty at Otis College and a co-founder and head designer for a design-build firm located in Orange County.
