Favorite Baked Goods

Indian Samosas

After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Central Missouri State University, James enlisted in the US Navy. He spent 14 years doing intelligence analysis with special operations forces down range. Throughout this time he studied greatly in the fields of psychology and human performance. 

James learned of Dog Tag Bakery through friends who share his entrepreneurial bent and encouraged him to apply. He is looking forward to using the education and experience from the fellowship to open his own business focused on bringing advanced holistic and technological health and performance techniques to more people than currently have access to them.

While James doesn’t really have a favorite baked good, he does fancy Indian samosas or comparable curry-filled pastries.
