About James

I'm a native of Philadelphia, PA and attended Drexel University, graduating with a B.S. in Economics in 2013. After graduating, I commissioned as an Ensign in the USN and was initially stationed in San Diego, CA as the Strike Officer on USS Spruance (DDG 111).

After completing my first tour, I attended Nuclear Power School and Prototype in Charleston, SC. After successfully completing both programs, I reported to USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (Ike). On Ike, I was the Reactor Control Division Officer, overseeing all electronic equipment related to reactor safety and control.

After separating from active-duty, I plan to attend a full-time MBA program and hope to pursue a career in consulting. Personally, I have a wife, Devon, and a nearly one year old son, Owen. I'm a passionate Philadelphia sports fan and love to hike, exercise, and play sports.
