At the age of 20, Julien spoke only french and had never been outside Canada. However, his thirst for knowledge led him to study Mechanical Engineering and rocket science in five countries. These experiences across borders lit Julien’s passion for culture. He now speaks four languages and has acquired unique cultural skills which he shares in his lectures and bestselling books.
