James is in his early 30s and is a passionate Apple fanboy, having been a Mac user for over 10 years. He also enjoys photography, the odd video game, far too much sci-fi and good music.
James became a Christian in his early teens and was baptised in a freezing cold river in the middle of Switzerland a few years later.
