James has lived a pretty amazing life. He’s an American, but he grew up in Russia, China, Taiwan, and Uzbekistan. He was baptized in a jacuzzi in Beijing, and he played baseball with the National Baseball team of Uzbekistan, and speaks fluent Russian. You may recognize him from his music career…he is the only LDS person to have ever had two different albums on Billboard’s Hip Hop chart, and at one time even had the #1 Hip Hop album in the world.

All those experiences and accomplishments aside, James keeps it real when it comes to his reason for wanting to be on PME. He just wants to meet new people and maybe find love.
