The Driving Force behind the idea

James has lived in Portsmouth all his life, and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else! He  currently works in the charity sector as a Project Leader, organising events for local children. Since 2017, he has also run a local food blog which has gained quite a following. 

Qualified at degree level in Leisure Management & Marketing, he began his professional career as an Events Co-ordinator in 2007 at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Since then, his varied experience has included working as a Local Guide at Spinnaker Tower; taking audiences around the streets of Old Portsmouth, Southsea Castle and Fort Nelson on theatrical ghost walks; working as an international activities facilitator for a Finnish language school; and delivering science shows and workshops for schools in the South East England region and in the United Arab Emirates.

James is also a Portsmouth Ambassador and supports the Shaping Portsmouth initiative.
