Early Life and YouTube Beginnings
Julien was born at the Stanford University Hospital; he grew-up with an older sister and a younger brother. During first grade, his parents separated which became a troubling time for the family. He played a lot of baseball when he was young, but didn’t really have a passion to pursue it as a career later in his life.
While completing his education, he discovered the website YouTube and decided that it was something interesting for him to pursue. He started out posting weightlifting videos and vlogs on the website, but didn’t really gain any traction. After completing his education, he began working as a programmer at AMP Radio, while also working on his YouTube channel, on which he slowly gained strength and expanded his reach, which helped increase his subscribership. He began posting on the popular app Vine too, and also launched an Instagram account which gained a significant number of followers. However, his popularity really took off when he became the boyfriend of another YouTube personality, Jenna Marbles.

this past year was an unforgettable one for many reasons. sometimes it’s hard to really stop what you’re doing and take a good look at what you have in your life. the work, the people, the love, the growth and the challenges.. but one thing i’ve learned this year is that it’s so important to make that effort. for yourself, your mental health. and the people around you. every day we get is honestly so special being in the moment to remember that is one of the hardest but most worthwhile lessons a person can learn. one i’m constantly trying to improve on personally. i’m so proud of the work i’ve been able to accomplish and the people i’ve been able to work with this past year. and i’m just continuously staggered with pride at how my girlfriend, life and work partner has continued to be such a shining example of doing what you love and finding happiness from trusting the importance of living your life that way. thank you for spending another year with me and supporting the hell out of everything i do. I’ll never be able to properly express what it means to me. to anyone who sees this; happy new year. i hope 2019 brings nothing but good things to you 💜🎉

Jenna took on various odd jobs before discovering YouTube. She began uploading content to the channel, and in 2010 her popularity increased significantly thanks to the video “How to Trick People Into Thinking You’re Good Looking”, which attracted over five million views during its first week. Eventually, she started posting similar videos which continued to gain attention, even from a variety of news publications. Since then, she’s appeared on various other YouTube channels, working on collaborative projects such as “Epic Rap Battles of History”, “Annoying Orange”, and “Ridiculousness”.
In 2015, she became the very first YouTube personality to be put in Madame Tussauds, New York. Her online popularity has also led to her starting various business endeavors, including a brand of dog toys based on her own dogs, and also hosting a program at SiriusXM Hits 1. She also tried her hand at production too, gaining an executive production role for the film entitled “Maximum Ride”. She’s been nominated several times throughout her career, including three Streamy Award nominations. According to statistics, she is the eighth most popular channel operated by a woman, and one of the most subscribed channels on YouTube at 85th.

Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, it is known that Solomita has been in a relationship for over five years with Jenna Marbles, since early in their YouTube career; they reside in Los Angeles with three dogs and previously owned a hamster who passed away in 2018. Both of them are vegan, with Jenna making the commitment sometime around the mid-2010s. One of the reasons why he is vegan is due to the auto-immune disorder called celiac disease which primarily affects his small intestine, and because of which he often experiences various gastrointestinal problems such as loss of appetite, chronic diarrhea, and abdominal distention.
Similar to numerous YouTube personalities, he is highly active online through accounts on various major social media websites. He has a Twitter account on which he posts a lot of comedy content and daily thoughts. He also does a lot of sponsored posts, and promotes some of his upcoming projects. He mentioned that he recently became an FAA certified commercial drone pilot. He also has an Instagram account on which he posts personal pictures, including of photo shoots, of himself while travelling, alongside his girlfriend, with friends, and while at events
