Let's Work It
I make things: Brand strategies, creative campaigns and content for all screen sizes. People say I’ve got too many interests but my first love is creation itself, from stories, to photos, music, furniture and scientifically brewed cups of coffee. Born and raised in Nashville, I set up shop in LA ten years ago. I don't know where I live anymore.
Founded Julian Smith Productions in 2001; age 14, my family had to drive me to meetings. Homeschooled, I was able to gain production experience during the day, save money, as well as further delay my childhood. In 2007, I applied my years of creative and production experience to launch a cinematic comedy destination on YouTube. The first of its kind on this platform, my channel quickly became a 1st generation YouTube Partner, Top 100 channel (out of 70 million), driver of millions of sales and subscribers, and billions of impressions.
When YouTubers started doing brand deals, I chose a different path, leveraging my success with digital shorts to jumpstart a career as a creative director and digital specialist; and have been fortunate to lead an array of objectives for my favorite brands, entertainment studios and marketing / advertising agencies. Getting back behind the scenes rekindled an old flame I’d forgotten, and while I still enjoy acting from time to time, I do tend to prefer the creative problem solving aspects of storytelling. I’d love to hear about your goals and how we could collaborate.
I'm also a husband and father to three charming kiddos (the charming part I attribute to my wife's genes). Thanks for stopping by.
