Justin is a freelance opinion writer in his spare time.
He is also founder and editor of Humans of Eastwood, which was started in June 2015 to celebrate people and life in multicultural Eastwood, and is modelled on the success of Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York.
“We decided to do an Eastwood chapter of this concept, because we felt sorry that no one had taken notice of humble Eastwood in Sydney’s north west. We realise of course that Eastwood is no New York. We are a little bit smaller, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a lot of interesting local stories to tell.”
One favourite story was that of Greg and Esther, a local couple who found love in Eastwood and their interview with Humans of Eastwood was later reproduced in the 24 February 2016 edition of the Northern District Times.
