In 2009, James became the first member of the Flying Dog team when he was brought on as a part-time accountant. Through the years, his role has expanded along with the company. Now a full-time employee, our “Chief Financial Officer” (as you may hear Dan refer to him) is involved in various behind the scenes activities ranging from everyday bookkeeping to re-organizing the entire inventory.
Originally from the Port Huron area on the east side of the state, James moved to Kalamazoo in 2006. He graduated from Western Michigan University in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. James continued his education at Western, and, sixteen months later, completed his master’s in accounting. In his free time, James enjoys writing screenplays (currently working on his second), wine tasting, and Golden Girls reruns.
