  • Julian Bongiorno

    Graduating from Columbia in 2013, Julian comes to DFA with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and an explosive passion for innovation. As a DFA Fellow, Julian hopes to unite the various studios by inspiring and producing life-changing projects that improve communities. His passions have led to a career in social entrepreneurship with a passion for working beyond his comfort zone. The soccer field taught him well in the ways of team dynamics and leadership while his numerous projects have developed his technical skills. He raised over $5.5k for cancer research by donating his hair via his personal website, JulianGetsAHaircut.com.
