Justin grew up playing games on an old Commodore 64 and his fascination with games only deepened with the arrival of the consoles. The revelation was only truly unveiled when he got his hands on his first PC. Early titles like scorched earth and Star Control held his attention, but it was Doom that irrevocably changed him from a mild mannered suburban boy to a programming video game guru. He spent weeks digging around wad files and editing scripts until the desire to build something of his own was planted deep within his psyche. He believes games are an intricate art form, and that with enough passion, any coder can be an artist.

His passion for games led him to found trapdoor bear with his best friend, and start building the gaming experiences of his dreams. When not writing code, Justin enjoys playing music, travelling the world, and calisthenics. He loves routine but also unexplained cake.
