Hello! I'm James and I've created this resume website to share a little of who I am in hopes of landing a position at a progressive organization that shares my ambition of making waves. So who am I exactly?

If I had to choose one, Cherry Twist by The Crystal Method would have to be my favorite techno song. I grew up on old skool breakbeats, drum'n'bass, trance, and anything with boom.

A day on the slopes is one of my favorite ways to bond with my family and burn off stress. Chances are if there's fresh powder in the mountains, you know where my head's at. It's at work, of course.

I love making genuine connections with people and the art of prestidigitation couldn't be more fitting. Magic is not only an exciting hobby, it helps me think of unique and unusual solutions to intricate problems.

From martial arts to being a dad, staying active and healthy has, and always will be, important to my lifestyle. I don't post lifting memes and pr's on my social streams but that doesn't stop my competitive side from always wanting to succeed.

My wife and my son remind me to always keep life in perspective and that sometimes it's okay to put the work aside and play. Truly listening and engaging with them has helped me understand the value of how far a little effort and sincerity can take a relationship.

I won't try to capture ten years in two sentences but I will say that the lessons I learned throughout my enlistment will stay with me forever. My journey has taken me through being a wilderness survival instructor, aerospace physiologist, aircrew and pilot instructor, centrifuge test subject, base honor guard trainer, pararescue apprentice, and professional recruiter.

My wife was born and raised in Denver and takes full responsibility for the reason I'm a dedicated Broncos fan. If the game is on, there's a good chance we're enjoying a cold one somewhere with friends and family!

From terrible gas pump UX to hotel stationery to a flawlessly kerned menu typeface, everything is an opportunity for inspiration or improvement.

Is it even possible to call yourself a nerd without being a gamer? I grew up on the old school classics and have witnessed each new generation of gaming evolve. Getting lost in a great story line is one of my favorite ways to experience what artists in other art forms are dreaming up.

I owe my love for the great outdoors to my father, a camping guru and zen master. When technology infests my life and overstays its welcome, it's time to throw on the pack and disappear for some much needed reflection and decompression.
