Having a curiosity for all things built, James, along with his mane of hair, keeps the other co-founders of CICADA in check. Being a native of New Orleans, he fully embraces his southern hospitality, enjoying all things food, music and tech. James graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from the LSU College of Art and Design in 2013 and has been working in the architectural field since 2009. Immediately upon graduation, James, along with his wife Adrienne, co-founded a digital modeling and fabrication business, Future Factory. His spark for design began while studying at the Washington Alexandria Architecture Consortium (WAAC) outside of Washington DC.
James balances his full-time career as a professional architectural designer with his passion for digital modeling, 3D scanning, aerial photography, video editing, and video animation.
James also volunteers for Habitat for Humanity and teaches children in his community the basics of 3D printing and 3D scanning. He also enjoys the constant struggle of juggling all of his passions and hobbies with the help of good coffee and his supportive wife.
