Reliable. Accessible. Dedicated.

Meet James

Born and raised in Delaware, I have lived in Newark for nearly two decades and currently reside in Nottingham Green with my wife, Mandy, our three kids, rescued dog and cat. I served as a coach for Newark American Little League and in various roles for Delaware Swim Team, Nottingham Green Swim Team, and Kirkwood Soccer Club. I am also an FAA-licensed private pilot.


After graduating from the University of Delaware in 2000, I worked for W.L. Gore & Associates for nearly 10 years in various roles, including, most recently, as a global supply chain manager. While working full-time, I commuted out of state, four nights a week for four years to obtain my Juris Doctorate in 2007. I am currently a practicing attorney in Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania and a Certified Arbitrator in a judicial role for the Pennsylvania Court of Common Pleas.


My industry experience required effective communication and interpersonal skills to successfully problem solve and reach consensus. My legal experience honed my abilities to think critically and break-down complicated issues through analysis and research to form thoughtful recommendations. These experiences and skills will serve me well in representing District 1.
