When James isn’t interviewing technology leaders, he’s lucky enough to work with them.

He’s the Director of Marketing and Communications at Infinia ML, which offers artificial intelligence solutions to retail, law, security, and healthcare clients.

2007 dorm room interview with Congressman Ron Paul

James started honing his interviewing skills as a college student in 2007 when he hosted presidential candidates on his dorm-room video blog. The Economist said he was "probably the world's foremost expert on YouTube videos posted by presidential candidates."

During the 2008 election, he wrote, hosted, and produced an award-winning video series for Politico. In 2012, he wrote and hosted videos for The Daily, a first-of-its-kind newspaper for tablets and smartphones.


He later served as Head of Communications at Automated Insights, an internationally-recognized software company turning raw data into polished prose.

James loves speaking to groups from North Carolina to South Korea. He lives with his wife and two high-energy children.
