About James Hitchings-Hales

James is a Digital/Communications Assistant at Global Citizen. A devout Welshman based in East London, he adores new music, adventures abroad, and Liverpool Football Club. When he's not studiously tinkering with his Fantasy Football team, he's busy either quoting Kanye West or planning his next ambitious trip away. His favourite things in the world are his labradoodle (called Pandora), Huw Stephens, and everything David Bowie did in the 70's.
