Living life his way
James Harris loves life. He wakes up with a smile on his face, ready for what the day will bring.
James is 35 years old, and his social nature is one of the first things you notice when you meet him. Walking through the Mount Barker home that James shares with his house mate, Brenton, it’s clear that he’s very proud of where he lives.
A shelf in his bedroom is dedicated to his favourite television series, Doctor Who, along with awards from his achievements in soccer and sailing.
“Check out my medals and trophies” James said, holding them proudly.
