Growing up, games were always an important part of Jules family, including family board game nights, Christmas family poker games and trying to pry the ColecoVision® and later NES controllers from the parentals’ hands. He has now passed on this tradition and is raising the next generation of geeks and gamers.
In early 2008, Jules was hired by Party 934 as their Program Director. When the station finally hit the airwaves in September 2008, that is when he began to host the Geeky Pleasures Radio Show. Once a week for 2 hours, Jules played a wide variety of music including many geeky songs and discussed with listeners some geek topic of the week.
In 2009, Jules also took on the additional duties of Assistant General Manager of the station and launched the Geeky Pleasures website when the radio show and blog could no longer adequately fill the demand to share what has been called “Jules’ unique brand of geekiness”. Due to a change in circumstances, he stepped away from Party 934.
After helping to create and build another radio station in 2010, Jules decided it was time to move on and enable a specific vision to become a reality. With a passion for music, entertaining the world and helping others to realise their same dreams, he launched The Look 24/7 in 2011.
Jules has had some pretty well-known geeks sit across from the mic during the Geeky Pleasures Radio Show, including interviews with: Wil Wheaton, Jonathan Coulton, Phil Plait, Sylvester McCoy, Richard Hatch, Paul Darrow, Paul and Storm, R.A. Salvatore, John Kovalic, John Scalzi, and so many more.
Jules’ work has been featured by The National Post, CBC, Global News, CTV, Daily Xtra, all of Bell Media’s radio stations, and more. His words have appeared on Wired, GeekDad, Quirk Books, Nerdy with Children, and more.
Jules’ disability progressed to a point where he had to step away from most of his. Now, he spends what little spoons he has developing Disabled Kitchen and Garden, writing the companion cooking book, and the odd freelance writing gig because he can never stop writing about Star Trek.
