Justin is a cofounder at the NYC based startup PunchUp. He heads the marketing and sales initiatives. He was introduced to the original founders of PunchUp through a close mutual friend in November 2011. The instant chemistry with PunchUp team members and his strong belief in the vision led him to quit his banking job at J.P. Morgan Chase.
He hold two BAs from Columbia University–one in Political Science and one in Jewish Theology. While a student, he was the VP and a center on Columbia’s Division III Club hockey team. As an experienced debater, also he held the position of President of the Columbia Model Congress. After being moved by his own volunteer work in Guatemala for a summer, he planned tour trips and trained others to run trips with the non-profit As Green As It Gets.
Justin currently lives in New York City.
