     James was born and raised in Old Orchard Beach, and since the age of 14 has worked in the family septic business. In 1991 with his brothers they became managing partners in Blow Bros. In 1997 Blow Bros. expanded into the solid waste market under the name BBI Waste Ind. After only one year BBI Waste grew by merging with BestWay disposal; creating a powerhouse liquid and solid waste company in Maine and New Hampshire with four locations. Two locations in New Hampshire, one in Belmont, one in Brentwood, one in Bangor, and the corporate headquarters in Old Orchard Beach Maine, where James was instrumental in running and growing the liquid waste division into the largest in Northern New England. The company was sold to Casella Waste in 2012 where James remained managing the liquid waste division for nine years.
