Julio Perez is originally from Miami, Florida, beginning his colorguard career in high school where he attended G. Holmes Braddock Sr High.
Upon graduating, teaching became his next endeavor in the colorguard activity. While teaching, he was able to continue performing, joining the cast in organizations such as Braddock Independent, Boston Crusaders, FIU Performance Ensemble, etc.
As an educator, he lives for opportunities to enrich the lives of his students to become passionate about their art which has become his ultimate goal. Teaching local and out-of-state teams also helped shape the educator in him and fortified his decision to pursue degrees in education.
