Jules Leon is the creator of Jules of the Sea (JS). JS is a marine science themed social media platform whose mission is to bridge the gap between marine science research and the public while also promoting diversity in the sciences. Over the years, Jules has had a variety of jobs throughout the field of marine biology including, being a research assistant, divemaster, marine animal rescuer, and an Alaskan fisheries technician. As great as these experiences were, it was his time as a marine science instructor on Catalina Island that taught Jules that people tend to learn the best when they can share a laugh along the way. So, Jules decided to create JS as a way of sharing his unique experiences in marine biology combined with his sense of humor through fun comics, art, merchandise, and educational videos. After all, it is Jules's belief that marine biology can be as fun and entertaining as your favorite movie or tv show!
Join Jules on his quest to become the next great science host as he makes fun marine themed video parodies, music videos, art, comics, as well as interview real scientists and sustainable companies. Follow @julesofthesea2021 on Instagram and check out wwwjulesleon.org for more!
