About Julie

Professionally, my background is graphic design and publishing. I am the creative and marketing director for ManGrate, so every day I am immersed in all things related to BBQ/grilling—which is a cool thing!

But in the world of grilling and BBQ there are several peripheral things that relate to my interests: good food; live music (I am a blues vocalist….love me some blues…as well as many other genres of tunage); craft beer, wine and bourbon; sports (especially football, hockey and rugby). Oh, and Harley’s. Motorcycles get my motor running, so to speak. So I thought I would have plenty to say, plenty to explore and plenty to share.

I’m married, live in the DC area and I’m typically building, painting or making something, out singing (or enjoying live music), or entertaining. You supposedly go through life only once, so I plan to enjoy as much as I can.

Being the social person that I am, feel free to reach out if you have any input, a story idea or just want to say hello.
