WHO I AM

 

Justin currently attends Chapman University’s BFA Theatre Program as a BFA in Theatre Performance Major candidate. Having starred in University productions such as Othello and Good Kids, while acting in Dodge College student thesis films and numerous independent films in the LA scene, Justin continues to pursue his multidisciplinary career in TV, film, and stage work. Born and raised in Singapore and the U.S., Justin’s insatiable attraction to comedy began at an early age. From Middle School class clown status to producing highly acclaimed High School sketch series, web series and short films, Justin’s quick wit never ceases to elicit a trail of smiles in his wake. Drawing upon his comedic and improvisational abilities, he currently sits on the executive board of the Chapman University Improv Inc, which qualified for the National Improvisation Championships in 2015 and 2016. Accomplishment in comedy accompanies success and passion in dramatic roles such as John Proctor in The Crucible and many more. In addition to his comedic and dramatic acting chops, Justin is an avid freestyle rapper, lyricist and beatboxer. His elementary school obsession with street magic still makes appearances amongst friends.
