The first thing you notice about James is the rocks, which he quickly will point out are not just rocks, but gemstones that he and his partner found. He's a highly trained handyman and mechanic who enjoys nothing more than sharing what he knows and building skills in others. A native of Culver, he enlisted in the Marines, where was trained in automotive, jet turbine and solid fuel rocket mechanics, earning many certifications along the way. He returned to Central Oregon looking to give back to his community, share his skills and hobbies, which beyond gemstones include astronomy, another course area he's teaching.
