Hi, I’m James

…and I’m a recovering pessimist.

But don’t worry about that. Super cheery people are who you need to worry about.

An enthusiastic shot of cynicism in your half-empty coffee never hurt anyone. But more importantly, it’s a writer’s best instrument.

How so? It keeps you grounded and humble. Plus, it keeps you from writing basic shit like “Live, laugh, love.”

And you won’t get that with me. I promise.

But I’m not a total misanthrope. I’m a romantic at the core – a traveler, a foodie, an aesthete. I love roller coasters and speed. In other words, I’m a 6-year-old boy doing pretty well in a 30-something-year-old body.

At least I think so. Want to learn more? Buy me scotch. Contact me.
