I’ve studied the way countries like Israel, Spain, Portugal and Ireland nurture innovation and entrepreneurship.
Together, we’re making a huge effort to learn from the best practices of major partner cities in other countries and to apply them back in Greater Boston.
Now that my work is focused locally, I’ve had to find other ways to connect more broadly – with organizations like World Class Cities Partnership.
With them, I’ve travelled to different international cities, exploring the anatomy of innovation.
During his internship, he worked on a wide spectrum of projects – from 275 Wyman Street to the Four Seasons and Distillery projects.In his free time, James also enjoys traveling, golf and skiing.I’m living my dream project…which somehow turned into a 15 year nightmare along the way.Born and raised in New Mexico, James now lives in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood…an ideal location for a self-proclaimed foodie!When James is not savoring the neighborhood’s bustling restaurant scene, he loves to entertain at home, playing sommelier and showing off his own culinary skills with friends and family.
We’re working with smart people who are driving development and change locally and impacting the blueprint of important initiatives like Boston’s Innovation District.
