In addition to a busy practice, James spent two years as a part-time clinical tutor teaching in undergraduate clinics at the University of Western Australia School of Dentistry.

In 2008 James fulfilled a lifelong dream and purchased an old Dairy farm in Margaret River. This kept him busy on the weekends and allowed him to pursue an interest in land rehabilitation and conservation creating a practical farming space whilst creating wildlife and bird habitat and biodiversity tree planting.

James moved to Sydney in 2021 working in private practice and relocated to The Gold Coast in mid-2023.

James has two teenage daughters, and in his spare time, his hobbies include gardening and reading whilst snow skiing, dog walking, scuba diving and cycling keep him active.
