An avid reader, biographies on men who overcame nearly impossible odds to achieve their dreams would be on his favourite list. His mentor Neil Sinclair, the founder of AMCHAM, he has helped Justin overcome some of those impossible odds.
Justin is analytical. The dictionary defines analytical skill as the ability to visualize, articulate, and solve both complex and uncomplicated problems and concepts and make decisions that are sensible and based on available information. Such skills include demonstration of the ability to apply logical thinking to gathering and analyzing information, designing and testing solutions to problems, and formulating plans. Sounds like someone most companies would want to get to know!
He would like to be remembered as someone who is honest and hardworking. To be remembered for sharing his knowledge, his contacts and his experience with other who have similar values.
Against all odds might be a phrase that resonates with Justin, he admired Christopher Reeves who continued his career despite being a quadriplegic and Nelson Mandela who survived nearly 30 years in prison, to come back and become the first black President of South Africa.
Human rights, democratic reform and the environment are causes he supports. But life is not all about government and bureaucracy for Justin, he has a great canine buddy named Walter, named for the lovable mad scientist from “Fringe”. He and Walter are often seen out walking and enjoying life’s finer moments.
