Thank you for visiting Here’s 2 Cents! My name is James, and I’m glad you’re here. I created this site to share about my journey in life as a consumer. In Reflections on the Psalms, C.S. Lewis wrote “I think we delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment.” As such, this page is an attempt to complete my joy about things that I find praiseworthy.
I have a diverse educational and professional background. I am a trained classical musician (percussion) and drummer (mostly jazz styles). My work experience includes working as a musician, missionary, insurance agent, account executive for a group tour operator, and as a financial advisor. My most important “job” though is being a husband and a father of three school aged children.
As a father of three, it seems like I’m always researching or buying something. From everyday purchases to big ticket items, everyone wants to know they are getting their money’s worth. Everyone looks for value, and I’m no different. In fact, I’m a unique type of shopper: the cheapskate!
My goal in life is to help people and make a difference, and my hope is that in some way, this site will be beneficial to you.
