In addition to his skills as a video producer, James is also a musician with expertise on the piano, violin, and timpani.

And through his involvement in film festivals, James became a partner with a Mesa, Arizona-based media company.
After growing that media business, James was able to finally start his own. In 2018, Lee Media was established. James is particularly dedicated to excellent customer service and understanding each client’s unique set of needs – believing client needs ought to be met with the full gusto of a Hollywood budget. James commits himself to finding the creative solutions to production challenges, regardless of constraints. He does so via collaborative team leadership styles, and fostering a fun and supportive work environment.
