Julie sold and supported  Apple /// and Lisa Computers in the 1980s before joining Apple Imaging in the early 1990s as a postscript quality engineer  coding tests and firmware diagnostics on the Apple LaserWriter printers.

Other interest include early computing from ancient Greece and pre-industrial England.   She is an active historical costumer and early adopter of the steam punk design aesthetic.
