My name is Justin Martin, also known as JD, the owner and creator of Lucid Media. I am an artist, scientist, jack of all trades, and master of none. I created this to help people like me, inquisitive and always looking for the next best thing to add to my life to make every day more memorable.
I grew up in the early 2000s in Burlington, NJ, where I attended Burlington Public Schools. I’m grateful to have grown up in such a diverse environment with many great role models. Some of which is my grandfather, a humble bassist, veteran, and macho man who taught me how to love art and how to be a man. Another role model of mine, the late Steve Irwin, sparked my love for wildlife and the natural world and inspired me to pursue a degree in Environmental Science at Rutgers, New Brunswick. Throughout school, I played in a concert band and was an active member of the arts department. My love for classical and jazz music began then and continues today.
My work is driven by a profound desire to inspire others to make the most informed decisions when purchasing products, utilizing services, or preparing for significant experiences. Knowledge is power, and by providing well-sourced advice derived from extensive research papers and first-hand accounts, I aim to empower individuals to navigate the complex landscape of consumer choices with confidence and clarity. Whether deciphering the intricacies of a new gadget, evaluating the quality of service, or planning for life-changing moments, I strive to equip people with the insights they need to make decisions that align with their needs and aspirations, ultimately fostering a more informed and discerning society.
