James – Barista

How long have you worked here at Tom Thumb cafe?
This is my second day actually.
How’s it going so far?
I think it’s going alright, you’d have to ask everyone else I suppose…

(From the back we hear, “His doing great!”)

What did you do before this?
I studied creative writing and then went over to London but unfortunately I kind of hit the G.F.C. So I found ‘hospo’ and it’s been my friend ever since.
What’s your passion?
Writing, and song writing for my band ‘Smoke Signals’. I also love making coffee and tasting coffee.
What’s the biggest challenge you’re facing right now?
Saving for a wedding… I’m getting married in April this year to the lovely Ashleigh.
What’s been the biggest surprise about organising a wedding?
Everyone wants a plus one and no one can understand why they’re not invited…
