James is a performer born and raised in the Tasmanian theatre scene, before moving to Melbourne to pursue musical theatre with VCA. 

James has developed quite the repertoire for villains and grumpy Englishmen during their years at VCA, so it feels fitting that their professional debut is the epitome of grumpy Englishmen. Their other credits include Voldemort from Wizardry High Tea, John Jasper from Mystery of Edwin Drood, and George from Aspects of Love. 

Their career continues to flourish in the Melbourne theatre scene, representing grumpy middle-aged men everywhere.
