Hi! I'm James. I love learning new things, being outside, walking
with my dog and making music. I'm passionate about people. My
friends and family are incredibly important to me, but I love being
friendly, meeting new people, having interesting conversations
before getting around to introductions.... I've got a big heart, I
love helping and taking care of people, whether it's my best friend
in need of advice, or a random stranger crying on the street. I'm
never shy about offering a hug.
What I’m doing with my life
Just starting it really... I've been working for a family friend's
landscaping business, which has been pretty brutal! Not really sure
what my next move will be career-wise. I'm fresh back in Orange
County and I don't know too many folks down here, so I'm definitely
open to making new friends, if something develops from there,
Someday in the future I really want to have my own piece of land. A
couple acres out somewhere beautiful with lots of animals and lots
of friends around. I'm also interested in starting up a non-profit
that provides animals for animal-assisted therapy. I worked for a
group called the Mustard Seed Ranch over the summer and it was
amazing. They work with abused and neglected kids, using horses as
a model for human relationships, building trust, things like that.
Really an amazing experience!
I’m really good at
Working with dogs, working with my hands, playing guitar and
cooking! I'm smart, but I've never been great at school. I'd rather
learn by doing than having to learn a ton of stuff that's
completely irrelevant to what I want to do with my life.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hopefully a big smile or laugh =)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many things to list! I love classic rock and the blues, as long
as it's not too 'pop'-y I'll take a shot at it. I like it when
music's got soul, some emotion behind it. I'm a recent convert to
country music... I really like the stories they tell with the
music. The dancing is kinda fun too!
I'll be honest, I haven't been doing much reading lately, but Harry
Potter is definitely on that list... I love rereading them, you can
always catch something new. Anything by David Sedaris can make me
laugh out loud, Bill Bryson can be funny too!
Favorite shows include South Park, Archer, How I Met Your Mother,
Big Bang Theory, 30 Rock, Modern Family and that new one, American
Horror Story has got me intrigued... Duck Dynasty is also pretty
I love watching movies.... Will Ferrel is hilarious, old school,
talladega nights, step brothers... and just about anything by the
whole Judd Apatow crew: knocked up, I love you man, Zack and
I'm always willing to try something new, and I love to cook, so my
taste in food is pretty eclectic. I'd be hard pressed to come up
with a favorite!
The six things I could never do without
My dog, my family and friends, good music, Trees, Sunshine and the
Middle of Nowhere
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to do with my life! I try not to spend too much time
thinking about politics, but certain topics will come up and grab
my attention. I'm also always looking for new songs to learn!
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out at home with my dog, recovering from a long tough week!
Every now and again I'll go out to a bar with some friends, but
lately I've been pretty low-key
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't drink or do drugs anymore... and I actually enjoy listening
to and singing country music....
You should message me if
You like dogs, you have a sense of humor, and you're not afraid to
take a chance on something real. Every guy likes to say "I'm not
like other guys", but I'm pretty awesome, and a lot of other guys
are incredibly lame...
