LOS ANGELES, USA // As Vice President of Licensing and Soundtracks, Julia is responsible for the placement and licensing of RCA’s frontline recordings across all visual media. Her strong passion for the art and science of pairing music with picture brings artists together with creatives who truly understand how music helps tell their stories.

Julia’s breadth of experience and tenacity to close deals have resulted in meaningful opportunities and revenue for RCA artists. Since joining the licensing team in 2011 she’s worked with artists across the roster to create original recordings for a diverse array of projects including Miguel’s “Simple Things” (now Platinum in the U.S.) for HBO’s Girls, Lucky Daye’s “Fade Away” for Universal Pictures’ The Photograph, and most recently Jazmine Sullivan’s cover of Jonathan Larson’s “Come To Your Senses” for Netflix’s critically acclaimed Tick, Tick…Boom! Her pitching efforts have landed impactful placements for her artists in hit TV shows, films, video games, and trailers, and she’s secured major commercial campaigns with Apple, Gatorade, Chase Sapphire, and Ford, just to name a few.

Julia has over 15 years of experience in music licensing, working on behalf of both artists and songwriters. Prior to joining RCA Records, she was a part of the creative team at Bug Music where she focused her efforts mainly on video games. Her accolades include being named one of Billboard’s 30 Under 30 in 2011, and one of Billboard's "Gaming's Top Sync Players" in 2020. Julia graduated from the USC Thornton Music Industry program and is originally from Chicago.
