About James

I am an applied physicist by training who loves making, baking and learning. I teach physics for modern technology at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in BC, Canada. I enjoy anything that lets me be creative from building cardboard halloween costumes to sheds and furniture to physics experiments. I am also an enthusiastic home baker and was a semi-finalist on the first season of CBC's Great Canadian Baking Show
