It wasn’t that he was taller than the other kids (now standing over 6’6”). Or that he sported the unique last name “Threalkill.” What really set James apart early in life was that he liked to draw. A lot. At the age of 13, James’s mother gave him his first set of oil paints and he never looked back.

James’s artwork embodies his passion for life, diversity, jazz, spontaneity and vibrant colors. James not only celebrates individuals in his artwork. He also serves as an advocate for them. In fact, the mural painting program he created in the community he grew up in has even earned him an Emmy Award.

"Get straight to the point."

A former All-American who played for legendary coach Bill Parcells at Vanderbilt, James also work as a Diversity Director. He loves to create opportunities for those who traditionally haven’t had as many — helping level the field so that everyone has a fair and equal chance to play in the business world.

As a consumer, James approaches brands, products and services with respect and expects the same in return. He doesn’t have time for fluff or messages that aren’t relevant to him. If you want him to pay attention to your brand, you have to be creative, innovative and respect that he is a father, a businessman, an artist and, above all, an intelligent individual. To learn more from James, watch his interview below.
