Get to know James:

What book changed the way you see and understand the world?
“The Book of Five Rings,” written by Miyamoto Musashi teaches the meanings of martial arts and how they apply to any given person. It has taught me to slow down and take in every relationship, lesson, or failure as an opportunity to learn and become a better person.

Who is someone you especially admire and why?
My grandfather because he’s battled polio all his life and remains the most positive and driven man I’ve ever met.

What’s one thing you absolutely want to do before you die?
I want to travel and surf on every one of the Mentawai Islands in Indonesia.
