As soon as James arrived in Spain, he left his advertising career and reinvented himself as an expert on all things Spanish. His path led to co-founding Devour Tours, as well as the creation of Spain Revealed, a popular YouTube channel with 350,000 monthly views that helps people to learn how to experience Spain like locals. His passion is to help people to travel deeply and memorably.
