rom a young age, Julian liked to tinker with household items, create new contraptions, and ignore instruction manuals. Julian brings this same tinkering spirit to his work—applying it to new products and business models with the goal of creating no-trade-off opportunities for clients.

Prior to joining ?What If!, Julian spent four years as a management consultant, where he worked on everything from helping a U.S. telecom prepare its newly-purchased spectrum for their next-generation network launch, to advising the Rockefeller Foundation on what countries in Southeast Asia were ideal for their rural electrification initiative. After consulting, Julian focused on product development, creating a new mobile messenger for a small startup that took on big players in the space.

Outside of the office, Julian spends his time on the hunt for the best places to travel, on rinks and ponds everywhere playing ice hockey, and in the air attempting to perfect his skills as a pilot.
