His nickname is Leprechaun, because of his height, Auburn hair with gotee, and the fact that he is mostly of Irish decent(Some German).
Justin is the oldest child of James and Carolyn, born in the small town of Childersburg, Alabama, old USA, Earth. Like his dad, Justin wanted to become a Starfleet Officer. His dad had been a Lt.Cmdr. and Cheif Engineer aboard an Excelsior Modified Class Ship, so as a result of it, he became very knowledgeable in the maintenance and operation of ships.
As a fairly bright child, he was often bored and spent more time flying small crafts than was good for him. He had his own share of close calls with the shuttles but somehow managed to get out of them, and indirectly sharpening his skills as a pilot. The year before he joined the Academy, His best friend Anthony Mooney Graduated an Ensign, and on his first deep space mission he was killed in a battle with the Ferengis. After the lost of his friend, Justin never trusted any Ferengi!
He enrolled in Starfleet in September of 2384, to try to live out the dream of being just like his dad. His mom agreed to it, thinking that the structure and discipline will do the young Justin good. Justin hated the regiment and discipline of the Academy but somehow tolerated them, all the while keeping his eye on the bigger prize, The fact that one day he would be an officer....
The most notable disciplinary action taken against him was when he he didn't Graduate his 1st year at the Academy, and had to stay a 2nd year.... While not getting into trouble during his 2nd year at the Academy, he decided to put more time into learning Starship technical drawings and learning the nuisances of space craft design. Presently, he views them as a window into the limitations of each class of vessel from a pilot's point of view, but eventually he aims to try his hand on a few designs of his own.
