About The Author

Julian Reeve

Julian Reeve is a British author, consultant, and speaker, and has been a perfectionist for over forty years.

His adaptive perfectionism helped him become the Music Director for the Broadway musical HAMILTON in the U.S. and played a considerable role in his fortune to travel the world with his work and establish three successful businesses in the creative sector.

Julian's maladaptive perfectionism has not been so kind! Years of stress related to fear of failure in performance, low self-esteem and a bullying inner critic took its toll in 2017 when Julian experienced a heart attack aged just 43. This health scare prompted extensive research into perfectionism, the results of which now provide the foundation of his work.

Realizing that much of his experience with maladaptive perfectionism could have been avoided with more knowledge of the subject in childhood, Julian created Captain Perfection to inspire young perfectionists to develop robust and healthy management techniques for their perfectionism early on in life. The importance of self-compassion is central to his message and integral to his work with older perfectionists and companies that employ them.

Julian lives with his wife, Lisa, and dog, Ollie in California.
