James Simenc is an actor who always thought he’d grow up to be a scientist. Or maybe he's a scientist who got very distracted. It depends who you ask.
James earned a B.S. in Applied Mathematics and a B.A. in English with a Creative Writing Emphasis from UCLA, where he spent most of his evenings and weekends working on theater pieces. Since then, in addition to acting, he has worked as a writer, an audiobook narrator, a corporate event host, and a game designer. He served as Senior Multimedia Producer and Associate Editor for the LA Review of Books, where he produced over 100 video interviews and docu-profiles of subjects like William Friedkin, Cameron Diaz, Harlan Ellison, Margaret Atwood, and many more.
James is the creator and host of DIGITS, a biweekly podcast where math, numbers, and human experience collide. Listen to season one now! http://www.digitspodcast.com/
