Justin has spent 5+ years working in organizations and technology, working across management and digital lead roles and working in systems including Salesforce (inc. Communities), NationBuilder, Zapier and other tools.

As the former Executive Director of reThink Green, he designed and operated several sustainability certification programs, including the reThink Events auditing program for major festivals and public events.
