Adventurer, Scientist, Mountain Leader and more: Huw James on Daily Notes

Tell us your background.

My name is Huw James, an Adventurer, Scientist and Presenter from South Wales, UK. My background is in Astronomy and Space Science and am now a professional Science Communicator. My job is breaking down complex science into understandable chunks in the hope of inspiring a new generation of curious minds. Was born and raised in the Welsh valleys and still live here, though I get to travel a lot so it’s nice to come home after every trip!


What hobbies are you into and how did you get into it?

I’m one of those lucky people whose hobbies are their job. I do a lot of outdoor work, as well as climbing I’m a climbing instructor, and as well as mountaineering I’m a trained Mountain Leader. I also love playing with and talking about Science which means my work isn’t all that bad.
