Julia Johnson

Julia has worked for many magazines but her favourite remains Green Team, an environmental publication she ran from her treehouse in the summer of 1993. She confidently led a small staff of neighbourhood kids and all magazine work since has been an attempt to recapture the glory of that perfect summer. She hosts and produces the pop culture podcast, The Thrill.
