James first visited FACT aged 9 and since then he's become obsessed with outdoor sports - he recently completed a BTEC in Outdoor Adventure Sport.
In his free time, he enjoys running, swimming and cycling so naturally is hoping to put them together by participating in triathlons next year. And when he isn't out in the flatlands of Essex, he likes to get away to the mountains.
James is a qualified BC Paddlesports Instructor and is working towards instructor awards for RYA Dinghy and ERCA High Ropes. He hopes to continue in the outdoor industry after his time at FACT.
