Julian was born in Twickenham, England and grew up in the rubble-strewn post-war South London that evolved into the exciting swinging sixties and the call for peace. His first brush with fame and success was spending Saturday nights in local pups enjoying the company of the many then-unknown pop groups like the Rolling Stones.
Julian became a professional engineer and emigrated to Australia in 1972 where he served as a Squadron Leader in the RAAF. Since then he has spent over 30 years as a senior executive, business owner, coach and consultant across of dozens of industries.
He is the author of several business books and you can tune in to hear his business wisdom tips each week on 2NURFM at 1pm on Thursdays for Business, the Law and You, a popular program that has been running for over 16 years.

Farewell to a former presenter at 2NURFM, George 'the Leprechaun' Graham who passed away on 8th September 2017.
George was born in Belfast in 1920 and came to Australia in 1956. Those of us who worked with him remember his sense of humour and bright personality, and his weekly program was always a bright part of the 2NURFM schedule.
As he ended each program, George would always admonish his audience to "be kind to each other".
His passion for music also saw him as a long-time member of the Waratah Male Voice Choir.
Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
The Passing Parade with John Doremus is a series of 130 tales that was originally syndicated in the United States. On a visit there in the mid 1960’s, Grace Gibson Productions picked up the Australian, New Zealand and South Pacific rim rights to the show.
John Doremus was an American announcer who had that rare talent for story telling. He could hold a listener’s interest, and had a warm, easy and mellifluous voice – all with a sort of ‘campfire yarn’ style of delivery.
