James Staley is a writer living in Las Cruces, N.M.

During his award-winning career in journalism, he wrote about everything from tragic crimes to historic events. He has interviewed national political figures, Olympians, and Kevin Costner, who at the time was wearing only a jockstrap.

Now a marketing communications specialist and freelancer, James has trained at Second City and with Scott Dikkers, all while fully clothed.
