Our Team

JUSTIN PARSONS

FOUNDER/CEO

Looking at lines of small numbers and letters carefully arranged into angle brackets against a blank backdrop isn’t exactly calming to most folks. For Justin Parsons, writing code is a rhythmic symphony of logic and creativity. Stemming from an obsession with figuring out how things work, Justin began experimenting with programming and web design in his teenage years as an early adopter of all that the Internet had to offer. Studying Computer Science and later, New Media at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary, Alberta, Justin worked alongside several start-ups gaining hands-on industry experience before launching his own full service agency, Keep The Internet Busy. After achieving local success, he made the move to Toronto, Ontario to further expand and grow his business before returning to Calgary with a hearty portfolio and a wealth of experience.

Today, Keep The Internet Busy has worked with a multitude of businesses across Canada and the US in a diverse range of niches from restaurants to medical supplies. Justin is well versed in HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript to name a few and is constantly learning new languages to stay on top of current web development trends. In addition to back and front-end development, Justin is a whiz at online marketing and specializes in making the most out of a brand’s social channels. With the ever-changing digital landscape, Justin stays ahead of the curve and is passionate about learning and developing new skills in his spare time.
