He invented and received a patent for “AbracadabraÃ‚®” Stain Cover-up, now also making him “The World’s Youngest Inventor!Ã‚®” His SECOND invention, “Julian’s Drum Gloves(TM),” is patent pending.
He has received numerous honors and awards, including “Maury’s Most Talented Kid” of 2009 and “The 2007 Rock and Roll Lifetime Achievement Award.” He is featured in “Ripley’s Believe it or Not” and included in the Guinness Book of World Records as a performer in “The Longest Concert by Multiple Artists.” He is an Honorary Goodwill Ambassador for Muscular Dystrophy Association and The Miracle League of Michigan.
