Sir. James (Sir. James the Magnificent) comes from a family with long lineage of magic, stage performance, and travelling acts. With the S.C.A. for a classroom, sword fighting parents, and a belly-dancing older sister, James was fated to be in show business from the moment he was born. As a young man, James assisted the renowned magician, Jaxon the Illusionist, and learned a good portion of stage magic as the magician toured the country.
After, James set out on his own to pursue education in the more technical aspects of performance, taking him across the world and back, on-stage and off-stage, spanning four years on the radio, and eventually leading to the founding of his own D.J and audio engineering company, which provides entertainment and support to everything from weddings to musical bands and live performances, as well as technical support for PA systems and audio/video equipment all over the country.
An accomplished magician with the gift of blarney, James is also available to provide musical entertainment, staging, and lighting for parties and events.

Sir. James is President of the Butte and southwest Montana steampunk Society.
And a bord member of the
Southwest Montana cosplay Society,
The Bozeman Paranormal Society.
And a member of
