He has coached Olympians such as Jeremy Wotherspoon, Catriona LeMay Doan, Susan Auch, Stephen Elm, and Ingrid Leipa.

Julian himself is also an accomplished athlete. He skated internationally for Great Britain in both Short Track and Long Track, including the 1988 Olympic Games and 1987 and 1989 World Championships. For over 20 years, Julian has delivered numerous Level 1, 2 and 3 N.C.C.P. coaching clinics and mentored many up-coming junior coaches.

For all his skills coaching at a world class level, Julian has a gift for coaching our youngest skaters. His knowledge of the fundamentals of skating is unparalleled, ensuring the joy of skating—the skill and the fun—is instilled the moment skaters first step onto the ice.
