James is host of the radio morning show “The Morning Coffee Mix.” One of the things that greatly influences James’s life is the fact that he experienced a stroke, brain surgery, and a coma at the age of 40. It was caused by a very rare condition in his brain called an Arteriovenous Malformatiom (AVM). AVM’s are defects of the circulatory system that are generally believed to arise during embryonic or fetal development or soon after birth. They are comprised of snarled tangles of arteries and veins. AVM’s of the brain or spinal cord (neurological AVMs) are believed to affect approximately 300,000 Americans, and often lead to the necessity of brain surgery, and unfortunately often cause strokes. But in spite of the difficulties and challenge, James has come out ahead in this situation. He has raised two bright, wonderful children and is truly an inspiration to anyone that hears his story and journey.
He is available for motivational speeches, appearances, and voice overs.
