Hi, I'm James. I'm a storyteller based in Houston, Texas.

I'm available for assignments, portraits, events, design and multimedia consultations.

I believe that moments of authentic creativity can be encounters of redemption and I'm happy you're here. Through storytelling, design and photojournalism, I seek to find and share stories that engage and inspire. I graduated from the University of St. Thomas in Texas with a B.A. in Communication and Catholic Studies.

Got something in mind? Let's get some bubble tea, tacos or cupcakes and chat. :)

What's in a Name?

Why plusjames? Because it's more than about me. It's about you and your story because it’s important. So how are you? What’s going on?

You + James = Awesome. That's it. Really.

Powered by bowls of soup and bubble tea, I sharpened my media skills during college and pursued design and journalism full-time after graduation. 

Here's a little bit more about me in a really small pecan shell... Few things can fill my heart like a scoop of Blue Bell, a Houston barbecue, a stuffed snowball from Ms. Mae Mae’s, and a handful of Filipino egg rolls. You should say hi sometime, I’ll say hi back and give you a high five. Or a low five.
