James of web development company Business Edge

from James - I am a graduate of Penn State University with a degree in Journalism. Due to the dwindling opportunities in magazines and newspapers, my post-graduation focus shifted from writing to marketing, and more recently shifted from marketing to project management and technology. I enjoy seeing the growth of companies and brands, no matter how large or small. I’d like to think that our hard work behind-the-scenes plays a favorable role in making that happen.

What do you do here?

I make sure all deadlines are being met, all budgets are being followed, and everyone in the office is smiling!

What do you do when you’re not here?

I am a big sports fan (Oakland Raiders football, Mets baseball, Knicks Basketball, and Rangers hockey). I coach high school soccer and enjoy playing golf and traveling.

What is my favorite movie of all time?

Comedy: Billy Madison. Action: The Dark Knight trilogy.

Where is your favorite place you’ve visited? Where would you like to go that you haven’t yet?

I’ve been to Greece, Italy, France, Switzerland and England which was a fantastic two week getaway. A place that I would love to go is a remote island in the Pacific…Tahiti? Bora Bora?

What video game do you enjoy the most? Do you like to play alone or with friends?

I have owned a Playstation for years, and I own one game: NHL Hockey. Video games are not my strong suit.

Do you play any musical instruments? Have you ever been in a band?

Never played in a band, but I can play the drums…a little.

Who is your favorite singer or band? Would you dance in public to their music? If not, how much money would it take for you to dance in public to their music?

I have recently discovered a fondness for country music which did not exist for the first 26 years of my life. So I am certainly more open to putting on a cowboy hat and boots for a country line dance.

If you had a million dollars, what would you do?

Pay off debt! It’s not the sexy answer, but Penn State tuition wasn’t cheap!

Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome or Safari?

Chrome

What can you do that most other people can’t do?

I’ve recently run a half marathon. Maybe one day in the future I’ll gather the strength to attempt a full marathon.
