With a dual passion for politics and diplomacy, James took the leap from his hometown of Fredericksburg, Virginia to Washington, D.C. As an Associate at SIGNAL, he works with our transportation and telecommunications practices with an eye for detail and an unwavering focus on client initiatives.
James’ prior work in NBC’s newsroom, where he got the inside scoop on Capitol Hill, was a warm up to working with the communications and press team in the Office of Senator Mark Warner (D-VA). James undertook legislative research and analysis at FTI Government Affairs, formerly the C2 Group, and calibrated his strong communication skills in the commerce and trade office of the Embassy of Indonesia.
James spent four years on a mountaintop in Sewanee, Tennessee, where he earned his B.A. in Politics from the University of the South.
