James, tells us a little about yourself and all what you have going on.
I keep pretty busy and active as a multi-facet person in and around the industry. As a publicist, producer and actor I am involved in almost every aspect including marketing and PR in adult and mainstream media with Galaxy Publicity. In addition with my own acting, I work with many others in developing themselves, including conducting acting workshops in the Los Angels area.

What are some of the things that you really enjoy when working in the adult media?
I enjoy so much, it’s a pretty long list. Some things that really stand out are all the great people I have worked with, including strong people like Will Ryder. He is not only great and enjoyable to work with, but truly and honor. I really enjoyed working on "Saw A Hardcore Parody", "The Rocki Whore Picture Show", and "Not Charlies Angels XXX" this past year. Every film I worked on was fun, but these three really stick out in my mind. Of course working on set and having lots of fun behind the scenes too. There are a lot of pranks and fun that goes on and things people don’t sometimes realize. I remember things like filming the dinner scene in “This Ain't Happy Days XXX” and how we all reacted to having to eat a cold dinner that was supposed to be hot and had to act as if it was.
This business is a real extended family, with many who really care about and help each other. One thing, I really enjoy and feel is very important is coming to events like this and being with the fans, it is a very important aspect. I have met so many great fans over the years and they are the ones who really make it for all of us in the business.
In addition to your work in the adult industry, you have done and had great success and exposure in the “Mainstream” also. Would mind sharing some of this work with us?
Recent work in mainstream that I've done include; a series regular on "Co Ed Confidential Season 4" on Cinemax, "Mommy & Me" for director Jennifer James, A pilot for Mac Daddy Entertainment where they revived my "Izzie Sleaze" character, this sexy comedy is going to be a series, and is going to be picked up this year. I've also worked on such television programs like; "General Hospital", "Designing Women", "Quantum Leap", "Matlock", "Beauty & The Beast", "Head Of The Class", "WKRP In Cincinnati", and "NightCourt". Plus years of work onstage as well.
In all the different work you do, over the years you have worked with many newcomers in the business. What advice do you have for young ladies as they enter or are considering entering this business?
I think girls should not come into the industry until they are 21, or if they are under 21, at least mature enough to handle this. The industry can be very tough if you're not prepared mentally as well as physically. You also should have a good business head on you, and make clear plans on what you want to do, and what you can do. Get good representation, after you've made some movies, get good publicity to get your name out there. Always bring your "A" game, whether that's on the set, or to signings, or to public events where you're seen by fans and critics and fellow performers. If you don't enjoy sex, you shouldn't be doing this, have fun with this, it's a great industry to work in, if you're enjoying yourselves.
As we wrap up, is there anything you would like to share with your fans and readers?
I'm very thankful for my AVN and XBIZ nominations this year, I've have been working a lot, in front of the camera, and as a publicist plus as a weekly radio and television host on "". The radio program can be heard on live on Wednesday nites. I'm always going back and forth between adult and mainstream, I love working in this industry.
James, I want to thank you for you time today and wish you the best as you continue forward with a very successful career. I hope that in the future we will be able to visit again.
