Many say that I am among the rarest of my breed: a skilled creative professional who also possesses strong analytical thinking abilities. I bring a unique perspective to any creative team, focusing on details others often overlook, therefore staving off potential obstacles.
Some have called me a “problem-solving Ninja.” I excel in professionalism, interpersonal skills, and am the first to offer a helping hand wherever needed. I am always looking to explore new and exciting opportunities as well as collaborate on a variety of creative projects.
I look forward to speaking with you soon.

what people are saying…
On top of that, James is an amazingly talented graphic designer and writer. I enjoyed collaborating with him on Recognition Program projects. He listens well, and comprehends the vision. He can work on multiple projects without losing sight of each, and he is mindful of deadlines. A true professional.
James is an innovative self-starter, who rarely needs supervision. He is punctual and typically exceeds expectations. He handles pressure well, and will voluntarily work overtime and do what is needed to meet deadlines.
His creative intelligence and dedication to his work is among the best I have seen. He has the drive and energy necessary to see complex projects through to completion. James is both a team player and a dynamic leader, a professional who wins the respect of colleagues through his integrity and unwavering desire to bring out the best in himself and those around him.
