Upon graduating, he joined GEDO Associates in Kenya as a Graduate Engineer. He later joined PAUWES as a Water Engineering student. At PAUWES, he was involved in the PAUWES Community of Practice (CoP) as a self-taught photographer and the group leader of the Multi-Media Team. In Algeria, he learned French language, which enables him to work in a Francophone environment. From his master thesis research work (carried out in Burkina Faso), Julius has combined engineering and entrepreneurship ideas to innovate a sustainable solution to the huge losses incurred by farmers as a result of drought. He has a private project in Kenya at Kwoyo water supply project where he is designing water supply system for the village. Julius aspires to work internationally as a researcher providing solutions to problems.
