About

Hi, I’m Jon.

Welcome to my little corner of the internet, where I tell science stories in interesting and humorous ways.

I am an early-career science communicator working at CIFAR. Before moving back home to Canada in 2018, I worked in London, England  for two and a half years (at the Royal Institution and the Science Museum). Before that, I studied in Edinburgh, Scotland (MSc. Science Communication) and in Hamilton, Ontario (Bachelor of Arts & Science). Check out my LinkedIn profile for a full run-down of my experience.

I started this blog in 2012 as a place to put interesting astronomy coursework after it was done. Then it evolved into my contribution to a friend’s essay-a-week competition and in the summer of 2013 I started my first series: Awesome extinct animals. The blog went quiet for a while after that, until mid-way through my scicomm degree, when I decided to write 26 articles, released once a week: the ABCs of Interesting Things.

More recently, it’s been a repository for my writing and videos.

I am always happy to hear from anybody who reads the blog and if you want to get in touch, leave a comment here or reach out on twitter (@farrowjon).  If you have a topic in mind that I haven’t covered yet, let me know and I’ll get to it asap.
