Hi, I'm

Justin Franks

Social & Civic Entrepreneur
Software Engineer
Cooperative Advocate

I’m a Michigan transplant in DC since 2012 — helping individuals and organizations define their digital presence.

I help local businesses, entrepreneurs, organizations, and community groups leverage technological change to connect with their audiences.

Technology is to a business or organization as much as one organ is to an organism.

My Story

My worldview is informed by systems thinking, and extensive research in international political economy, digital network technologies, and alternative business models.

I’m resourceful, curious, and socially aware – with a passion for collaboration through creative digital media.
