Justin Colen is a professional Studio Engineer and Producer. Starting piano at a young age Justin developed an ear for music. Shortly after a friend introduced Justin to Music Production and the Korg Triton Keyboard. Justin started experimenting with different sounds, recording, composing and beat programming. Production and Audio quickly became a passion.

In 2004 Justin Colen decided to attend FullSail University in Winter Park, FL for Recording Arts. This gave Justin valuable knowledge with Engineering/Production techniques, Protools, SSL and Neve consoles and signal flow, outboard gear, studio management and professionalism.
