Chief Operating Officer

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.—Benjamin Franklin

James has an extensive background in government contracting and healthcare interoperability. At Ready Computing, James has led our Federal lines of business serving as the Director of Implementation. His well-established government connections began during his Army career. James served primarily with the 1st Infantry Division, had deployments in Kosovo and Iraq, and also earned the Bronze Star Medal.  After transitioning from active military service, he continued to support the military community leading programs to modernize infrastructure, improve cybersecurity, and improve connectivity and integration across various Army, Navy, and Marine Corps installations.

James eventually transitioned into healthcare interoperability and security as the Director of Operations at a regional HIE, supporting rural and remote hospitals. He then worked with Premera Blue Cross as the Manager of EHR Integration supporting data science and healthcare innovation. He is now back to his roots, supporting the Federal and Veteran communities through their healthcare transformations.

James brings a strong sense of team, vision, and accountability to his work. He embraces challenges and focuses on delivery. Along the way, he also likes to have a little fun and is constantly perfecting his “dad humor”.
