He has 7 siblings on his father side and 1 sibling on his mother side. His parents separated when he was only two years old. He lived there until he was 16 years old. He moved with only his father to the Philippines, leaving his mother, brothers and sister back in Australia. The reason of their move is because of financial trouble and his father needed some medical attention. James was having troubles adjusting in the country as he is experiencing problems with a different academics and social skills, especially the language. James was a gymnast and a swimmer. He used to study at Makati Science High School before his dad decided to enroll him in Karabar High School Distance Education Centre, an Australian distance-learning center located at Karabar, New South Wales, Australia.[1][2][3]

Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Clash 2010[edit]

James was only 16 years old when he entered the Pinoy Big Brother house as one of the 10 Teenternational housemates on April 30, 2010 (Day 22).[4][5] He celebrated his 17th birthday inside the house with his co-housemates giving him a surprise pool party. James is the only teenternational housemate who has Filipino blood. James was almost forced evicted twice during his stay inside the house, the first one was when he was brought to the hospital on May 21, 2010 (Day 43) because of chest pains, discoloration, and shortness of breath and the second one was when he was again brought to the hospital on June 1, 2010 (Day 53) for the same reason but this time together with his co-housemate Angelo Pasco. At first, doctors diagnosed him with costrochondritis or muscle pains in the rib/chest area. It was learned later on that he has a hole in one of his lungs that makes it hard for him to breathe. James was able to go back but he needs to rest and wear an oxygen tube for 1 week 24/7, he was then told by Big Brother that he can already removed the oxygen tube on June 8, 2010 (Day 60) but he still need to wear it at night while he sleeps.[6]
