James currently is an ACD Art Director at GSD&M in Austin, TX. Here, he has contributed to numerous new business wins, including PetSmart and RadioShack. But day to day you'll find him primarily creating for the Southwest Airlines account. Prior, he’s worked at large shops like The Martin Agency, and smaller ones like BooneOakley. He has also fulfilled his advertising dream of working on Madison Avenue.

Other facts about James: He has lived in three countries. He has co-starred in the cult movie, Cornman: American Vegetable Hero. He once borderline insulted Alex Bogusky. And people often mistake him for comedian actor, John Hodgman, sometimes even offering to buy him a drink. James doesn’t correct them and shamelessly orders his drink of choice, whiskey. / 214.597.8206
