Julia Murphy grew up in Asheville, North Carolina. She graduated from TC Roberson High School, playing clarinet and tenor saxophone in the band all throughout high school, where she served as Drum Major. She attended Auburn University for two years studying Wildlife Veterinary Medicine. Although she still loves animals, her career interest trended to more creative pursuits. She currently attends UNC Asheville and is working toward a degree in Mass Communication and New Media. Julia creates video content for ACM Design, everything from interviews to informational videos.
Julia learned many of her own creative skills from her mother, Amy. She spent most of her childhood growing up in a home designed by ACM, and was inspired by her from a very young age to express herself creatively. “My mom has a really cool job, and I’m blessed that I get to witness her work all throughout my life. She showed me how to be confident in my artistic tastes, while working effectively with other people’s ideas to create something beautiful.”
Between classes and editing videos, Julia enjoys drawing and painting, spending time with her family, or playing video games with her friends. Once she graduates, she plans to pursue a career in news production or filmmaking.
