About Julius & Bain Marketing

Julius & Bain Marketing, headed by Catherine Velasco-Houlahan, manages the Circus Living website, brand, and its subsidiaries.

Circus Living

Catherine Velasco-Houlahan is the Founder and Senior Editor of Circus Living. Circus Living is an arts & lifestyle blog which specializes in strange art, monsters, the paranormal, and the unexplained. Before Catherine's family moved to Quebec in 2015, Catherine was the Marketing Director for a legal firm and as of 2018 has been in the marketing field for 14+ years. Her passion for researching the cultural significance of the 'unexplained' in pop culture stems from her upbringing in the Philippines where folklore surrounding monsters and mythical creatures form a significant part of the culture. Catherine's interest in popular culture eventually lead her to pursue and acquire a Master's in Popular Culture. Aware that new technological developments continue to pervade our society and influence our development, Catherine also majored in Information Technology in an effort to learn how to utilize current technology to benefit society. Her recent efforts have been on keeping updated with recent technological developments in order to develop an app which will help artists connect with relevant art opportunities. At first, the mission for the app only encompassed connecting artists who create 'unconventional/strange/morbid' art. Due to demand, however, the 'Call For Artists' app project has grown to encompass all contemporary artists. Marketing helps propel this project forward and thus, Catherine has consistently stayed up to date with recent research surrounding SEO, social media marketing, and A.I. The app is currently in development and is scheduled to launch in 2019.
