James joined Distilled in November 2011. He comes from a background in marketing and social media. His passion for the Internet and “get stuff done” attitude fits in perfectly with Distilled’s Seattle office.
He was born in the Philippines, and raised in Richland, WA. James studied marketing at Eastern Washington University before making his way to Seattle in 2008. Outside of work James can be found pedaling his road or mountain bike. During the winter months he spends all his spare time up on the mountain snowboarding. He has been an avid snowboarder for 15 years and also volunteers with a program that teaches inner city youths how to snowboard. He blogs frequently at Jamazing Food.
