Confirmed to be a “Geek God” by some online quiz, Jules Sherred is a parent, author, radio personality, blogger and freelance writer, gamer, tech enthusiast, website designer, science nerd, sci-fi and fantasy freak, hard core Trekker, has an unnatural obsession with Optimus Prime and so much more. Jules emerged from the womb fully embracing geeky tendencies, with a book on Astrophysics in one hand and a deck of cards in the other.
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. Jules 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 Jules 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, Jules 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, Jules launched The Look 24/7 in 2011, where the Geeky Pleasures Radio Show, plus more, continue to live.
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.
