Justin was born and raised in Shaker Heights, Ohio, which is just outside Cleveland. He decided to attend American University because he wanted to study political science and Washington, D.C. seemed like the perfect place. Despite currently majoring in CLEG (interdisciplinary major that combines communications, law, economics, and government), Justin realized his true passion: journalism.
Outside of journalism and academics, Justin is a big fan of watching basketball and football, his favorite teams being the Cleveland Cavaliers and Cleveland Browns. Justin also loves watching TV (his favorite show is Game of Thrones) and listening to music, with music tastes all over the place, ranging from 1970’s classic rock to 1990’s hip-hop.
