James began working as an editor in digital content back in 2006, when Time Warner and AOL were still a thing. He worked at a digital media startup, Associated Content, which was acquired by Yahoo! in 2010.
Over the next few years he built a contributor network for Yahoo! Sports, also reporting and contributing articles during that time. After Yahoo! he spent a stint managing content and social media for CableLabs, where specifications and standards for every piece of technology related to the cable industry are set.
From there he started at MapQuest in 2014, where he built a travel-editorial website, including coding much of it himself. He returned to his love of writing in 2017 and has been doing it ever since.
James earned his MFA in Writing and Poetics from the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University in Boulder, CO. He previously earned a Bachelor's Degree in English with minors in Political Science and Philosophy. He has also completed several coding classes and online courses.
