ABOUT JAMES

James Johnson II is a voice actor, actor, and content creator. His voice acting spark began when he was in the third grade with 2 action figures and a group of his peers being entertained with the story between the 2 characters that he was playing. From that moment he discovered his passion for entertaining audiences and bringing stories of characters to life. Through the years James has played Basketball, played the Saxophone, and ran professional organizations, but his joy of story telling and providing joy to audiences was always at the root of everything he touches.James has a happy spirit that is pleasant to be around. In his work he aims at creating entertaining story development that not only provides joy to his audience, but leaves them with a life lesson to take away. James' distinct baritone voice is one of a kind and he utilizes it to breathe life into every character he touches.
