Meet the Team

Based in NYC et L.A., the HEREYOUARE Team is committed to producing the most captivating content and events in the most inspiring cities in the world.



Julien Lacheray

Founder & Editor

After earning a dual degree in mechanical physics and communication, he decided to live between Paris and New York. His transient lifestyle has allowed him to study these cities from the inside, giving him a profound understanding of their unique magnetism as well as their functional similarities. His life is a first-person experience of a new movement wherein the world’s most dynamic cities (and the people living in them) have become more connected to each other and less connected to the countries in which they happen to be located.
