James grew up on the coast of Down East Maine and Northern Connecticut, so nature and the elements are where he derives his energy. Music is his life blood. These essentials guide his life path and his yoga practice. During his time at Loyola Marymount, James learned what is now one of his core beliefs, that education of the whole person - mind, body, and spirit - are tantamount to a successful and rich existence. That philosophy coupled with his guiding essentials have brought him to a deeper understanding of his journey. They have expanded his vision of life’s great potential and the unencumbered acknowledgement of the infinite possibilities that exist.

“Open your heart and mind to engage fully on this path and the universe will reveal its infinite possibilities.”
