He started his journey at the Iibada Dance Company for 5 years and proceeded to study music shortly after. He graduated from Johnson & Wales University with two degrees in baking & pastry arts and culinary arts. Julian had the opportunity to study in Europe for 6 months and gain a clear understanding of the fashion and food culture.
