Notable roles include Feste (Twelfth Night), Lloyd Dallas (Noises Off!), Doc Gibbs (Our Town), Dave Moss (Glengarry Glen Ross), Cliff Bradshaw (Cabaret), Pseudolus (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), and Alfred Chamberlain (Little Murders).
James is currently seeking a B.S in Entertainment and Arts Management at Drexel University in Philadelphia with a concentration in Theatre. He has interned with Boston Court and Circle X Theatre Co. (member) in Los Angeles and Women’s Project in NY in such varied departments as production, development, general management, and communications.

He also pretends to be a playwright sometimes, writing short-plays such as “Bison,” “Thin Girls Stretching; or, Meat,” and “Elevator Music”.
His aspirations include working as an arts-administrator in non-profit theatre, producing fresh and biting new works, and co-founding the Angry Patrons theatre company.
Things in My Angry Patrons Survival Kit: My eyes, my mind, my mom’s spanish rice. My friends, my skin, my guitar. My father, mother, sister, and my “real family.” Stories. Oxygen. Love.
