James’s work touches all aspects of the company. Key responsibilities include: working with the commercial lenders to tailor each loan to the goals and people involved; helping Craft3 recover funds that can be used for future lending; and protecting Craft3 through licensing and compliance. James enjoys creatively solving problems as they arise and using his legal expertise to make sure that Craft3 can continue to pursue our generational mission.
“I love being able to both be a lawyer and do good. Whether it's helping a community services organization improve their space and help more people, or revising documents so other organizations and people can receive funding that doesn't violate their religious commitments, we make a real difference in our communities, and I love being a part of it.”
James joined Craft3 in 2022 and has worked in the legal field in both Washington and Arizona. He is an active community volunteer in the arts, sings with the Seattle Opera Chorus, and is the Associate Music Director for Viva Vocalists.
