Justin was born in South Alabama and grew up in Las Vegas NV. He describes Las Vegas as the place where “A little hustle can create a wonderful life”.
Early years in construction were scenes of riding around with his father to construction sites and watching the magic (aka chaos) happen. Whether it was the heavy equipment, deep trenches, or smell of asphalt, Justin loves constructing and developing communities. Currently, Justin is the President/CEO of the Terra Contracting family of companies which include: Terra Contracting Inc, The Barricade Company, JES Supply, and Galt Development. He has over 20 years of experience in the construction industry and has been building start up businesses since 2005.
When Justin is not working, he is brainstorming the next project, opportunity, or challenge whether it is for himself, his family, his friends, or his community.
Justin’s wife, Ace, is his steady rock and calm in the whirlwind of life. She is always supporting new ventures and adventures while creating play time amidst the business building…..And the 3 dog household is always full of love, and dog toys. A believer in “to those who have received much, much will be asked;” Justin stays engaged in philanthropic efforts, supporting Las Vegas youth by building gardens in schools, participating in mentor programs, supporting multiple 501c(3) operations throughout the valley. Justin cares about the quality of the local community and the investment into tomorrow’s leaders.
