My self-summary
Hi, I'm James.

My friends tell me that I can be a really quirky and intense person. I'm curious and I see every day as an opportunity to grow and improve the lives of myself and others. Some days may be more glamorous than others but life is short and shouldn't be wasted.

*I have to explain this a lot so I will do it here. I was born in England, raised in Hawai'i, when I turned 18 and graduated from Highschool my family and I moved back to England where I went to University for 4 years and now I am back in O'ahu in the Army National Guard.*
What I’m doing with my life
I have my BA in philosophy from a University in Cambridge, England and am now back home on O'ahu and am in the National Guard, working towards doing an MA in psychology and becoming a specialist in alternative and progressive education.

I work a lot and my typical Monday to Friday is up at 0600, gym, job 1, job 2, home, sleep by 2200, rinse, repeat.

When I'm not working I spend every day I can outside and/or with my friends. I like to go hiking at least once a week and either go swimming or kayaking. I'm also a big fan of story, particularly scifi and fantasy so I read and watch a lot of movies, programs, and documentries.

Gym: As part of the military I am expected to keep to a high physical fitness standard and ontop of that I'm a bodybuilding hobbiest. So I go 5x a week and hike to keep my fitness up.

Job 1: I work as a skills trainer. Contacted to an elementry school to work with kids with specific extra social/educational needs.

Job 2: I work at Jamba Juice as a team lead in training. It's essentially a key holding shift leader.

When I am in a foreign town/state/country:
I will spent most of my time just exploring or wandering around or urging whoever I am with to show me around and go exploring with me. I really enjoy ending up at some random cafe or restaurant, or just somewhere interesting.
I’m really good at

1. The truth
