James is a PhD Candidate and Sessional Academic with the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science at the ANU in Canberra. He is a presenter on ArtSound FM, flies Hot Air Balloons and founded the GAMMA.CON Pop Culture Festival. And he is a diehard fan of both Star Wars and the Essendon Bombers.


Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
