Same Day Editor

James was born and raised on the Windward side of Oʻahu and has always had a love for both film and photography. In 2014, he earned a BA in Creative Media from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, where he discovered his passion for editing short documentary films. James joined the Isle Media team as a video editor, and enjoys being able to tell inspiring love stories as well as compiling a couple’s entire wedding day into a highlight. James is also one of our Same-Day Editors, and he relishes the challenge of completing the edit in several hours, and then being able to see the reaction of the couple during the reception. On his free time, James enjoys hiking, watching movies, and collecting vinyl.
