James has lived in Harfield Village since 2003 when he moved from Greenpoint (Cape Town) in search of a more suburban lifestyle, but without living in deep suburbia. James was drawn to Harfield Village since it offered this type of lifestyle in a quaint village atmosphere centrally located in the very heart of the southern suburbs. James joined the HVA Committee in 2009 holding the portfolio of “Harfield Village Parks” before being elected chairperson in 2011, a position he has held since that date. James believes that communities must mobilise themselves as far as possible and seek solutions to local challenges. Through this process of mobilization a strong sense of community can be achieved. James also feels strongly that in order for South Africa to not only survive but infact thrive, communities segregated through history must reach out to each other and forge a unified city and country together. James has lived, worked and travelled to more than 40 countries around the world throughout his life, and genuinely feels most at home right here in Harfield Village, South Africa. James is the founder and manager of a local Non Profit Organisation called Uthando (Love) South Africa and in his spare time spends as much time as possible outdoors in nature doing gardening, hiking, scrambling and playing sport.
