James is Senior Manager Media and Communications for the World Anti-Doping Agency. Born and bred in Dublin, James attended Trinity College where he spent more time on the playing fields of College Park and in the Pavilion Bar than in any of that fine institution’s libraries or lecture theatres. He subsequently became a journalist and ended up as a news reporter and Cricket Correspondent for The Irish Times before taking a job as Communications Manager for the International Cricket Council in Dubai in 2006. In 2012, he returned to Ireland to work in a similar role for World Rugby and, in 2018, moved to Montreal to take his position as head of media relations and lead spokesperson for the global regulator of clean sport. He is married to a Kingstonian and they have two young children.
