Hello! I’m Justin. It’s nice to meet you.

I’m a designer, writer, and showrunner currently working at Fidelity Investments. There, I help Fidelity’s customers make confident financial decisions through digital experiences. I use clean layouts and direct language to create solutions built for humans.

Hosting & writing

I have created and hosted several podcasts.

  • I write and voice short fiction at Two Minute Stories. Listen on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
  • I host The Season, a show that dives deep into the stories, numbers, and significance behind history’s most transcendent seasons by individual athletes
  • I cohost Gametime, which discusses ESPN’s 2020 documentary series The Last Dance about the 1990s Chicago Bulls.
  • I host I Am Not My A Number at Fidelity Investments where I interview fellow designers about their creative ventures. This show is only available to Fidelity Associates.
  • I formerly cohosted The Design Game, a show about the critical role of design in sports.

I’ve published two books on the Kindle platform that collect many of the tales from Two Minute Stories.

Of interest

When I’m not helping Fidelity’s customers or hosting shows, I’m likely to be found on a golf course, a basketball court, or playing cribbage.

I’m also a proud alum of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.

Clients

Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with clients such as Fidelity Investments, EMC, Harvard University, Amazon, AT&T, Walmart, Jabil, Natixis, AG Mednet, and Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation.
