James has decades of experience under jis belt, and a real love of cars, having come through the industry since his first job as a vehicle groomer back in 2002.

Born and bred in Nelson, James grew up in Wakefield and attended Waimea College. He has kept true to his country roots, having competitively ridden horses since he was 5. He now competes on a national level, often travelling to events such as the Horse of the Year with his horse. Got a question about towing a horse float - James is your man! He has towed more horse floats in his time than most of us have had hot dinners!
