Deeply changed by the experience of the Covid pandemic, Julio has embraced a much more authentic outspokenness. He gets out of bed every day determined t​o make smart, funny, bold work that's full of heart. His creative projects seek to offer readers and viewers humor, insight, guidance, and a pathway to legit connection in a fucked-up modern world.

A moviemaker by trade and training, Julio has written, directed, and produced film and television content for The New Yorker, Nickelodeon, PBS, E! Entertainment, Samuel Goldwyn Films, Beta Films, Stone & Company, and Kerner Entertainment.

​​Before completing his MFA at the University of Southern California, Julio was an independent marketing communications consultant.  Working with a wide variety of clients — from solo entrepreneurs to corporations like Time Warner, Meredith Corporation, and Horizon Media — Julio focused on marketing and branding projects both small and large. 

Prior, JVG co-founded TAYPE — an after-school arts program for LGBTQ+ teens, which served vital and important institutions like Harvey Milk High School and the Ali Forney Center, for over ten years. The program was funded, in part, by the Time Warner Foundation.

Julio grew up in a large Italian family on New York’s Staten Island, where aunts, uncles, and cousins gathered often around Mom's seafoam-green formica kitchen table for “cake and coffee” — always an Entenmann’s crumb cake — to tell stories, argue about the Mets, and play cards with the neighbors.​​


He is a graduate of Harvard University and earned his MFA from the USC School of Cinematic Arts, where he was an Annenberg Fellow.​
