Justin Lewis

I’m a blue collar kid from Michigan and a former active duty U.S. Marine. I co-founded and get the privilege of serving as the CEO of Instrument, the digital agency I started 12 years ago. I’m a pretty disciplined guy, I love my family, I love making organizations succeed, and I love the spirit that dirt bike racing embodies. I turned 40 in 2015 and signed up for and survived Red Bull Romaniacs.

 
 
 

Are you creating something pure and perfect, or just adding to the noise.
