My name is Julian, and I’m a writer, researcher and Engineer. I co-founded Debacle Software, developer of the award-winning photography app Pano, and more recently I’ve been building Cast, a platform that makes it easy and fun to record, edit and publish a podcast.

Until I dropped out, I was a PhD student at the University of Toronto, working with Dr. Daniel Wigdor on high-performance touch interaction.
