About Julian Brass:

In 2008 Julian Brass founded Notable.ca, the first digital publication exclusively created for young, Canadian, professionals. With millions of monthly impressions and tens of thousands of members, Notable.ca is the national authority on all things related to the lives of young, driven, adults.  “Young. Professional. Connected.” is not only Notable's tagline, but also the pulse that drives its mission of bringing relevant and engaging content to young, driven and trendy professionals. Today Notable.ca is looked at as the leading source for young Canadian professionals and tastemakers.

Aside from managing the day-to-day operations of Notable.ca, Julian writes an ongoing series of easy-to-implement motivational blogs known as “#TheUpsideNow”. They are all about how young professionals can make the most out of every day of their life, recognizing that anything is possible with hard work, perseverance and strategy. Additionally, Julian shares his insights and experience as a motivational speaker to individuals and groups, and he loves all things related to health, fitness, lifestyle, and fashion. 

Prior to founding Notable.ca, Julian Brass lived in San Francisco, where he joined Silicon Valley start-up Engage.com, a hybrid social networking and online dating website. Julian Brass is a graduate from the University of Guelph’s Bachelor of Commerce program.
