He was an acting student in NYC pursuing the dream of becoming a Hollywood actor, however was forced to leave the country following his visa expiry just a year after graduation. He’s now been in Vancouver for 2 years trying desperately to take his seemingly everlasting stagnant career to the next step.However, things aren’t going his way and his patience running thinner than ever.

(Raised in Vancouver) is a 26 years old self-proclaimed “Next Tarantino” with an offbeat personality, looking to one day shake up Hollywood. Just like James, he was also a student in NYC majored in film and was forced to come back to Canada following his visa expiry. He’s been looking to produce his own feature but struggling to make a deal. He comes from an upper class family, his father is a businessman, his mother runs an art museum,and has a brother who is the same age and going to take over his father’s business. He despises his brother though, because his brother thinks he is an artist wannabe loser and makes fun of him all the time. His ambition to succeed partially comes from wanting to prove the family that he’s not a loser and finally earn respect.
