Justin is native of New Albany, Indiana, where he currently resides with his wife Kara.  They have three active kids.  Although he loved Chicago, Southern Indiana is home and has afforded an opportunity to coach all three of his kids in baseball and softball.  While not working, Justin enjoys spending time with his family outdoors, reading, triathlons, running and the next big project.  Yard work is not his strength.
