“In 8th grade, I brought my skateboard to school for a website project that would stand out from the rest. My principal, Mr. Read, confiscated my skateboard and called my mother and me in for a meeting the following day. I left the room and Mr. Read pulled my mother aside and told her, “Your son is a diamond in the rough; you should be very proud.” I heard this story years later and realized what an immense compliment that was. Now, I’m searching for those types of people in my life.”
Justin J. Ulrich hails from Baltimore, Maryland where he worked in the automotive industry throughout high school and college. Although the automotive field was not related to his degree, he still gained valuable real world experience. After graduating from Loyola University Maryland in 2010, he was recruited by a vehicle management company. This new position eventually brought Justin’s career to a crossroads. From there, he wisely chose the path less traveled and seized opportunities at the right time.
Justin immediately jumped on the opportunity to leave Maryland. His entry into marketing fell into his lap over a Facebook message. Presently, he maintains a healthy balance around writing and creating his body of work. He works within the fields he’s passionate about—marketing, development and media production.
His interests in photography, video graphics and special effects run deep. They made their way to the surface and are showcased in various parts of his website. Currently, Justin divides his time between family and friends, a full-time job and writing. Still, he devotes his time to a healthy lifestyle centered around traveling, exercising and quality people.
Never Busy | Always Productive
For Justin, it’s about making the time to create his body of work.
