Justin Barker

Hey There, I’m Justin.

I help organizations communicate their message, develop digital engagement strategies, produce story-based educational content and lead inspiring advocacy campaigns.



About Me


I am a California native who has spent the last 15 years living in San Francisco and traveling the world. I’m a father to Noah and husband to Bridget. I love seeing the world through my son’s eyes, cooking vegan meals and tending to our huge family of house plants.

We take weekly visits to the farmers market, spend Sunday mornings flipping through the New York Times over lots of coffee, and walking Ocean Beach with our rescued pup, Beatrice .

I just finished the manuscript for my memoir BearBoy and relaunched Citizens Lobbying for Animals in Zoos — the organization I started when I was 12 years old. These projects reflect my mission to organize and inspire through story telling.
