As you know, my name is Julia. I was born in the United States to German parents and grew up in Germany, which has influenced me greatly. Having spent most of my childhood and teenage years drawing, writing, and listening to music, I always wanted to do something creative when I grew up. I’m pretty stoked that worked out. 

I’ve lived and worked in cities like Berlin and New York City for quite some time. Now, I am located in Munich. It’s my home – I especially love being so close to the mountains. 

I’m pretty intense about music. 

It’s one of the most important things in my life, aside from my personal relationships. I loved working in the music industry and would love to do so again one day. One of my passion projects is listening to all the records that have been released since 1989 – the year I was born. You can track my progress on this spreadsheet, if you like. 

Fun Facts

I love making lists. This includes playlists. I will build a playlist for your wedding, birthday or moving day, if you want (and you pay me 50 bucks for it).

I‘ve crossed the Alps on foot twice – once in 2017 with my dear friend Shannon Byrne and once in 2020 with my partner.

I fall asleep while listening to audio books, but that always messes up my year in review on Spotify. I‘m actually got a second account just for audio books.

My book shelves are sorted by topics: There are books about music, books that were made into movies, fantasy novels, and books about hiking. 

I‘ve included „The Lord of the Rings“ in the hiking section.

I‘m scared of vampires even though I know/hope they don‘t exist. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
