Football career A product of Northern VA’s competitive youth ranks, Julian played for several top Division 1 clubs including Herndon Arsenal, Gunston Team America, & Reston Football Club. He was recruited to play at Virginia Commonwealth University where his squad made it to the NCAA Quarterfinal in 2004. He transferred to George Mason University and co-captained the club soccer team.
In 2016, Forte co-founded a 7-a-side club called Shaw FC in Washington, D.C. - the precursor to Guerrilla FC.
Guerrilla's talisman, Julian was the side's leading scorer in Season 1 despite missing half the season (reason - Wanderlust). He ran the midfield for the majority of Season 2 before pushing on into an attacking midfield position for Season 3. He's tied for first in Guerrilla FC's all-time leading scorer charts.
Creative career An accomplished musician, Julian worked with leading film composers while based in Los Angeles, including the legendary Hans Zimmer. He released albums under the aliases of Future Vince & When I Wake.
He now owns a successful business, restoring and building custom motorcycles, with a focus on Japanese and Italian motoring. Deeply involved in all things Guerrilla, Julian uses his t-shirt press and Illustrator skills to help turn Guerrilla FC’s design concepts into a reality.
Julian moved to London (Watford actually) in Aug 2017. He's currently seeking a loan with a squad there.
