TEAM Bio: Julia Dye
Things keep getting better here at Seven Days, and we want to introduce you to another new team member, Dr. Julia Dye.
After receiving her Ph.D. in Hoplology, which combines anthropology, sociology, economics, and more to the study of history, Julia wanted to see her knowledge used in a way that would have a lasting effect on the public. Using her background and experience, she’s been fortunate to be able to work through various media to connect the wonders of history to the public audience which is exactly what we want to do here at Seven Days.
Julia is Vice President and CFO of Warriors, Inc., the entertainment business’s premiere military advising company, and is responsible for Human Resources and Administration; Planning, Training, and Operations; and Logistics. She is also the Task Force Commander of Warriors Publishing Group. On occasion, as the project warrants, she also acts as a unit commander.
She began with Warriors on the film Starship Troopers, participating in Captain Dale Dye’s first co-ed extended boot camp in Hell’s Half Acre, Wyoming, eventually commanding her own platoon. Projects since then have included Rough Riders, Terminator 2:3D, Star Trek: The Adventure, Wag the Dog, and the Medal of Honor series for Electronic Arts.
She is affiliated with the Los Angeles Fight Academy and the Society of American Fight Directors, and was Weapons Master on Alexander with Oliver Stone.
Julia served as Adjutant on the maxi-series The Pacific for HBO, and is currently directing a documentary about Marine Corps Combat Correspondents, and last September the graphic novel Code Word: Geronimo that she co-wrote with her husband, Captain Dale Dye, was released.
Her book entitled ‘Backbone: History, Traditions, and Leadership Lessons of Marine Corps NCOs’ published by Osprey in November, 2011, was selected as the winner of the Military Writers Society of America’s 2014 Gold Medal for Reference.
Commenting on the book, Colonel Oliver North stated,
“Backbone is essential reading for everyone in a position of leadership — and all who aspire to lead. Julia Dye nails it.”
We’re ecstatic that Julia has joined us. You’ll be seeing her soon as we go to Waterloo, a place in time she knows very well.
