Born in New Hampshire and raised in Maine, Julian is filled with the New England spirit. He grew up on a farm in Belfast Maine, where his family owned chickens, rabbits, dogs, lizards, hamsters, and parakeets. Along with all the animals, Julian is one of 11 total children and spent his youth driving tractors, mowing lawns, training dogs, and camping in the beautiful backcountry of Maine.
During his early teens, Julian moved to New Hampshire to attend Proctor Academy, where he embarked on his first entrepreneurial adventure as a local dog trainer.

There, he immersed himself in his community as a nominated member of The National Society of Leadership and Success, a hired residential assistant, and a member of Greek life.
