Justin’s experiences as a father have taught him that kids need lots and lots of exercise. His experience in the residential playground world has taught him that he is not alone in struggling with how to handle the changes that technology is bringing to children’s play. That is why he is passionate about creating fun, enjoyable playgrounds, not just safe playgrounds. He believes safety is important, but children must be challenged and stretched and learn how to manage risk-taking to become responsible adults. He uses his experience as a small church school teacher to guide his thoughts and advice for schools and churches interested in commercial playgrounds.
While the majority of his time at King Swings was in office, he now resides in Halsey, OR as King Swings Commercials first remote employee (don’t screw this up, Justin!), and loves his family, cold plunges, weight training, and tabletop role-playing games.
