about me

Hi. I’m Justin.

Thanks for stopping by! I created this site to share a little bit more about me, and… from time to time… post what’s on my mind.

So here’s me…

My Family

Yep… that tall dude in the back is me! A great photo from last fall with my wife (Erin) and daughter (Reese).

Non-family wise… I currently manage an e-commerce team at Meijer (go Curbside!), am a musician at Mars Hill Bible Church, co-own a Photo Booth business, and do some wedding and business videography.

I spent my younger years growing up in Detroit and Mt. Pleasant, MI. I’m the oldest of four sons in our family, and currently the only married one (c’mon guys). I graduated from Mt. Pleasant high and carried on my education at Central Michigan University, where I obtained my business degree majoring in both Marketing and Logistics.

My career began with a packaging company in Midland, MI where I had roles in Marketing and Business Development. When my wife completed grad school to become a Physician Assistant, we moved west to land of Grand Rapids. And like I mentioned, I now work for Meijer and do all things digital.

Some other random mentions… I have a passion for freelance videography. It began with creating video highlights of my personal travel… followed by getting into the wedding industry. I only take on about 3 or 4 weddings a year given the busyness of life… but it keeps my creative edge sharp.

I also love writing and performing music. If you attend Mars Hill Bible Church, you may see me playing guitar on stage once a month or so. I’m not really athletic… but love exercising and working out. The “dad-bod” is a real thing, especially in Beer City USA. In the summertime, I love heading out to West Michigan beaches with friends, or swinging some clubs on the golf course. In the winter, I love dreaming about summer.

That’s a little about me… I hope you share your comments through the site! Also feel free to say hi to me via social… I do my best to stay active.
