After struggling with alcohol for 10+ years, James finally made the decision on January 1, 2019 to live a life of sobriety and re-imagine his dreams. He took a special interest in physical fitness and achieving a higher level of mental toughness and self-awareness. James began pushing the limits of his physical boundaries, all while being very transparent about his past struggles with alcohol, relationships, and his own self-image. 

He speaks candidly about his past to help inspire others that may be struggling in their own lives. Whether someone is grappling with their physical health, relationships, substance abuse, or mental shortcomings, James has been a mentor and hopes to motivate people to chase their dreams. 

James hopes to use the bike ride from Melbourne, FL to Washington D.C. to show people what is possible when they eliminate the excuses and chase down their goals and ambitions.
