A first-generation American and native New Yorker, Julien grew up in Yorkville on the Upper East Side. After spending ten years in New Orleans, where he earned his BA and JD from Tulane University, he returned to the metro area to work as a shipping broker. The bulk dry-cargo shipping industry exposed him to the refined negotiation skills necessary to charter vessels all around the globe in deals worth millions of dollars.
In 2012, after a frustrating search for a new place in Astoria, Julien decided to transition into New York City real estate, where he quickly found he enjoyed how the industry allowed him to meet so many fascinating people while exploring one of the most dynamic cities in the world.
Prior to joining Compass, Julien was a team leader at the Siderow Organization, specializing in luxury rentals in Gramercy and the Upper East Side. Fluent in French and English, he is an avid outdoorsman who particularly enjoys cycling, skiing, hiking, tennis and basketball.
