hi i'm julien

I live in Toronto and design board games and tabletop games. I do some art things and some music things too. I like candy and pizza. Feel free to say hello.

I've been living in the city for 10 years and studied music composition for video games at York University. I've participated in several game jams including TOJam and Global Game Jam working on music, art, and programming. 

I have been painting and drawing since I was young. I was obsessed with my SNES and was inspired by the music in Super Mario RPG, The Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy. I studied classical and modern piano performance along with composition and continue to play when I can.

I have learned how to code in flash and made a few pixel art games here and there, but my passion is in RPG and tabletop games. I've been a game master for several years. I've run Fate Core, Dungeons & Dragons, Dungeon World, Apocalypse World, and many more. I have a special spot in my heart for Mouseguard and Burning Wheel

I'm an avid reader and writer. I work on short stories and genre fiction. My favourite author is Ursula K. LeGuin, whose works inspire many of my creative pursuits. 

I work downtown as a barista while making and running games as often as I possibly can.
