He attended Sierra High School, where he studied until the first quarter of his senior year. For the rest of his senior year, Justin studied at Manteca High School, which he graduated from in 1998. He then transferred to Modesto Junior College in California.
The exceptionally talented dubbing artist spent his childhood on an almond grove in Manteca. Justine clearly showed an early artistic inclination. As a child, he says, he enjoyed watching the Ren & Stimpy, Show. The cartoon-loving child has now become one of Hollywood’s rare singing talents, comedians and cartoon creators.

Justin appeared from time to time in Comedy Central’s The Sarah Silverman Program in the role of Blond Craig.
The star began making cartoon creations and singing on his own. He is known for the cartoon Rick & Morty, which he created and produced together with Dan Harmon. Justin turned the two main characters of the cartoon. The dubbing actor proved his excellent skills by clearly expressing the two separate characters alongside the other characters in Rick and Morty.
