James received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of West Florida and a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering from Florida State University.

James' first computer was the original Apple Macintosh (1984), but since then he's mainly been swimming in the waters of Microsoft Windows. But his purchase of the first iPad, followed recently by a purchase of the iPad 2 and then a new Macbook Air, have given him a new outlook on his work life. James lives with his wife, Ashley, and two sons, and he tries to learn something new every day.
