A native of La Rosière, Julien started skiing at a very early age with his mum. He immediately felt at ease on the snow, and quickly decided that freestyle skiing was his favourite discipline.
Determined to succeed in his chosen sport, Julien put his working career on hold, meaning that he was 100% available for his sponsors, film producers, photographers and the media.
In 2007, he joined the Neophile Familia, a crew of freeskiers whose objective was to develop their image and visibility so that they could share their passion with as many people as possible by putting videos of their performances online. Several thousands of young fans follow their videos on the web. Julien even organised Neofever, an event that blended freestyle skiing with hip-hop music. Julien is quite shy when you first meet him, but once he has gained your confidence, he lets his enthusiasm and happy nature bubble over. Julien is one of very few French riders to be invited to international freestyle events. Last year, he attended the Nine Knight and the West Coast Session.
His renown and good reputation in the field have led him to feature in a large number of videos.
