James Packard

Content Producer

James is Denver-raised, and proud of it. A mile high wasn't good, enough, apparently, because he started flying planes at age 14 and never stopped. He often still thinks he'll grow up to be a pilot. James studied journalism at The University of Missouri. He's traveled all over the world, including stops to study in Morocco and France. He's a passionate reader, actor (both stage and film) and purchaser of plane tickets. Most of all, he loves interesting stories, so if you have a good one, reach out.
