Growing up with an artist for a mother, a self-professed gourmand for a father and a brother in the music industry Julie has been surrounded by creativity her whole life.  With multi-faceted talents, Julie considers herself a specialist at being a  generalist in the creative world.  In plain English, she likes to do it all: host parties, cook and create new recipes, mix  cocktails, design print and online graphics, style interiors, and even dabble with a paintbrush at times.  While at Cornell, Julie explored these many interests by taking classes in culinary, graphic design, communications, and even wine tasting.

Today, she furthers these many interests with Julip Made and by offering event planning, graphic design, and styling services. More so, she espouses simple, yet effective design and believes that with a little help, anyone can host a beautiful, memorable event or create a beautiful home.

A native Washingtonian, Julie enjoys long walks around the city with her Malinois pup Odin, trying new restaurants with her fiancé, searching for the best thrift stores, and of course entertaining friends and family in their new home.

Julip Made was founded in 2011 as a creative outlet for all of Julie’s passions.  Today, Julip Made is a lifestyle blog showcasing a collection of editorial and pictorial musings for living the stylish life.  Expect to find daily posts about all things food, design, style, entertaining, beauty, and color as well as snapshots of Julie’s life in Washington, D.C. including pictures of her adorable pup, Odin.  Julie also tends to whip up a mean cocktail from time to time.
