Meet the #MaleMonday: Julian

Everybody say hi to Julian (and his turkey)...

The star of this morning’s turkey tip-off, Julian was all smiles and dimples on set. Get to know him a little better below!

OK, please state your full name for the ladies: Julian Schratter

Age and star sign? 24 and I’m an Aires

And when you’re not defrosting turkeys, what are you doing?
I’m an artist and entrepreneur. I run the ThroughWhose project, a collection of photographs from disposable cameras. We feature people, places, events, and draw comparisons between the photos we collect. The 35mm disposable levels the playing field between our featured friends and our contributors across the world.

Cool! Send us a camera, will you? Do you have any hobbies?
Traveling, painting, photography, basketball, cooking, and cleaning!

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
“Keep your head up” –Tupac Shakur

What’s your favorite holiday this time of the year?
Thanksgiving! There is an abundance of home-cooked food and family.

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving dish?
I love drinking a little peach schnapps in the morning, with vanilla ice cream and other delicious things my dad mixes up with it. I can’t remember all the ingredients because after the first one we all get goofy!

Ain’t no better way to start the day. What’s the best holiday gift you’ve ever received?
When I was seven I was given a huge green dinosaur stuffed animal. It was so awesome and I had it forever. I think my nephew has it now, which makes it the BEST because it’s lasted so many Christmases.

And the best holiday gift you’ve ever given?
Probably my signature gift: framed prints of my sister’s kids!

If money weren’t an object, what would you buy your mom this Christmas?
A family vacation with all four sisters, six nieces and nephews, husbands, boyfriends, and girlfriends too.

Cute! Final question, what’s your motto in life:
Tomorrow I can be a better person than I am today.

OK, so that’s it for the week, more to come next Monday. Never miss a beat of this beauty by signing up to our newsletter here!
