He is an active member of the Grand Valley Aquarium Club where he has served on the board, and is currently president. Outside of the aquarium hobby, Justin is a band director, and enjoys cooking, playing saxophone, and anything in or on the water.

Each meeting centers around a topic for the tropical fish hobbyist presented by club members or outside speakers. In addition, the meetings include a bowl show, a mini-auction of fish and plants, and a raffle.
