Leslie has been paying close attention to levels of pleasure since she can first remember. Her antennae seem to have come tuned that way. She's honed the skill as a creator of memorable experiences working in various capacities for some of the most demanding and discerning client cultures in the world: as the owner of an import-based retail shop, as curator and leader of exquisite, immersive travel, as brand ambassador for luxury products, and most recently as Producer of a travel video series — The Pleasure Project — focused on the global ideology of pleasure
Justin founded BSFF & kulturspace on a strong philosophy of collaboration and a belief that enriching our world with artistic, cultural and innovative visions can be done collectively, free from the limitations of a traditional brick-and-mortar operation. Hailing from Los Angeles Justin comes from the entertainment world, from modeling as a child to performing sign language for Michael Jackson's 90's tours, casting at LA's oldest voice over studio to the start of his career at Warner Bros. Studios. Justin now works with likes of Mercedes-Benz, Deutsche Telekom, Adidas, Dr. Oetker, Victorinox, Frieze and others to harness and foster the force behind designers, strategists and creatives.

He moved to Stockholm in 2005 but quickly continued on to the vibrant art capital Berlin in 2008. His distinctive trademark is the chic with a somber undercurrent.
