My husband is amazing! James comes from a big family as number 3 of 8, and has a deep love for music. 

He played the tenor saxophone in marching band, wind symphony, and jazz band, and loves listening to big band jazz, drum and bugle core, and philharmonic orchestras. Besides music, James is an avid camper and hiker. He enjoys golf, chess, building computers and editing family home videos.

James is terrific with kids and is a favorite uncle to our nieces and nephews. There hasn't been a kid yet that hasn't adored him.

James studied in China for 4 months.
While we were still in school, James told me he wanted to learn Chinese, but was worried about how difficult it would be. After giving him a gentle kick in the pants, James can now speak Mandarin Chinese and we’ve both spent some time in China and are excited for more trips!

He graduated from BYU with a degree in International Business and a Chinese minor, and is currently working at Samsung as a Marketing Manager. James loves working with people, has a great sense of humor, and is excellent at entertaining children, teenagers, adults, or a room full of businessmen. I think the thing I love the most about him is how he can make me laugh literally every day!

Abi loves to help James!
