Bio

Justin crafts stories to elevate his culture so people will see themselves reflected in his work and know that they exist. He honed his disruptive, edgy writing style at the UCB School of Comedy where he still writes and produces shows.  Justin graduated summa cum laude from Morehouse College. After garnering awards for his original plays and short films, he relocated to Los Angeles where he studied under his mentor, Bill Duke, and became head of writing and development for his production company where he developed “Cover,” “Faces Of HIV,” “Rise ‘N Fly,” as well as many other projects.   He’s been selected one of NBC’s Writers On The Verge and appeared on "The Daily Show." His pilot, POSTER BOY, advanced to the semi-finals at Austin Film Festival, Screenwriters Network Pilots, and was named a finalist for the MACRO x Black List Warner Media Incubator.    His screenplay, PROJECT HUMBUG, was named a semi-finalist for the Academy Nicholl Fellowship and a finalist for Ron Howard and Brian Grazer’s Imagine Impact x Netflix Content Accelerator. It’s ranked in the top 1% in its genre on Coverfly’s Red List and is being considered for development at Universal.   Justin recently sold a screenplay based on his Off-Broadway Play, LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO, which was produced in 2021 and will be slated for release later this year.
