Julie Van is an Acquisitions Designer for Benchmark. She learned all her life lessons from Ferris Bueller and leaves car freshener trees in her whip longer than she should. Nothing disappoints her more than finding too many lemon or orange-flavored Starbursts in a pack. That, and failure. Back when she had dial-up, Julie wrote fiction in her spare time because she wasn't allowed to go outside and play like the normal kids. She finished with her degree in marketing and advertising, later focusing her studies on art direction and ending this bio with a big bang. Bang!
