Meet the Judges!

Justin Sullivan, Co-founder, TheHamblogger.com
Justin was born in the middle of the Southern California burger scene and raised by a family of burger lovers. His family used to eat burgers at least once a week at great places like Tommy's, In-N-Out and Astro Burger in L.A. It's a miracle that they have all lived this long after their excessive burger eating. When Justin was seven years old he would help the workers at the local In-N-Out by sweeping the parking lot and peeling onions in exchange for a free burger. Although he doesn't do janitorial service for burgers anymore, he still puts in extra hours doing his job as a photojournalist so he can afford his addiction to the almighty hamburger. Some of Justin's non-burger work can be found here.

His hobbies include cooking great food, eating great food, and occasionally playing softball or running--both of which make him hungry for more food. He lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife and son. He would never turn down a burger with a fried egg on top.
