Born on December 16, 1993 in Neustadt an der Aisch, Germany, Julian became a professional soccer player in January 2017. In Germany, he played for different clubs at the amateur level before deciding he wanted to pursue a college degree along side his dream of becoming a professional soccer player. This led him to Providence College in the United States to become a student-athlete. He graduated with a BA in Management in December 2016 and shortly after was picked 8th in the MLS SuperDraft by Atlanta United. His dream of playing soccer at the professional level became a reality and he is now in his third season with Atlanta United looking to add to the great success he has had in the first two seasons.
