Introductions are in Order

22 Mar , 2010 About Me

Hi. I’m Justin, and I’m an enabler.

When I was 12 years old, I got on the internet using the access provided by a college professor that lived around the corner from me, and a little help from my friend – his dad was an IBM tech, so he knew a ton about computers. Far more than I did, anyway. It was at this ripe age that I created my first community web experience. It was a wierd little somewhat self-serving science fiction writing project. The intent was to get me to write more, but the universe itself was created by my friends.

It didn’t last long, really, but I was already hooked. Since then, I have been a passionate and purposeful fan at the forefront of the online community movement. I have created independent portals and communities for several of my own passions, served as a third-party contracted Community Manager for Warner Brothers Pictures on an historic franchise, worked at Electronic Arts to breathe new life into a community that had been too long stagnant, and publicly represented four of the game industry’s most popular franchises.

Throughout it all, I’ve been driven by one core desire – to connect passionate, like-minded people with each other, and with the things they’re passionate about. I relish the opportunity to enable passionate people to express themselves in whatever ways they know how.
