What's in a Name?

Why plusjames? Because it's more than about me. It's about you and your story because it’s important. So how are you? What’s going on?

You + James = Awesome. That's it. Really.

Here's a little bit more about me in a really small pecan shell... Few things can fill my heart like a scoop of Blue Bell, a Houston barbecue, a stuffed orange snowball from Ms. Mae Mae’s (RIP), and a handful of Filipino egg rolls. 

You should say hi sometime, I’ll say hi back and give you a high five. Or a low five.
