    Justin LeBlanc
    Production Director | Abingdon

    Little known fact about you?
    I am not intuitive at all—except with animals. For some reason I can tell exactly what a cat or dog is feeling, but humans are a mystery to me, if something is wrong, just tell me!

    As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
    I wanted to be a garbage man so I could ride on the back of the truck. I think riding on the back of the truck would still be fun… just you know, without the garbage.

    If you could vacation anywhere, where would it be?
    In the movie Ex Machina, there’s a gorgeous house in the mountains…there. But that’s in Norway, so anywhere in the mountains, surrounded by woods, near a river will do.
