James is a features, travel, and tech writer. He first started snowboarding the same year as Olympic bronze medalist Jenny Jones. It's notable that their achievements on snow have followed different trajectories. Since, James has added surfing but subtracted skateboarding from the list of sideways-standing activities he's screamingly average at.
James enjoys beer that tastes like novelty candles, Mexican food, and delighting in the countryside of his adopted North West. James dislikes mushrooms, aubergine, and any talk of The Transfer Window. James cannot remember how long it took to grow his beard.
