Justin Hilliard's passion for all things automotive started when he first attended the Melbourne International Motor Show as a kid.
From then onwards, he started his career of car (and numberplate) spotting with his father and brother. This enthusiasm led to his dream of becoming an automotive journalist in the future.
Justin initially studied a Bachelor of Arts at Monash University but neglected to major in journalism because he could not justify the extra travel distance (albeit almost non-existent) between the Clayton and Caulfield campuses.
After taking a year off following the completion of his undergraduate studies, in an ironic twist of fate, Justin returned to Monash University to enrol in a Masters of Journalism at the Caulfield campus.
Elated that his dream came true, Justin joined GoAutoMedia in 2017 as Cadet Journalist before becoming Managing Editor in 2019.
In his own time, Justin is often found in front of a television watching the NBA and AFL, cheering on his beloved Carlton Blues and Oklahoma City Thunder.
