co-founder & head of strategy
Julian is co-founder and head of strategy at Type Human, and industry fellow in enterprise and innovation at RMIT University. Within academia, his research focuses on the impact of emerging trends on the future of work and ways of organising. Julian teaches in the fields of entrepreneurship and innovation, focusing on new venture creation and driving innovation inside organisations. At Type Human, he focuses on identifying opportunities for the application of blockchains and Web 3.0 technology and building the public case for this technological and social transition.
Prior to this work, over the past fifteen years he has found himself getting paid to play jazz piano, translate Spanish, teach classes in primary, secondary and tertiary education institutions, mentor social entrepreneurs, run a startup accelerator, make coffee, design leadership programs, and host talks on work futures (not in that order).
Julian lives in Melbourne’s inner west with his partner and their young daughter, and still (occasionally) gets time to play piano.
