James grew up as something of a nomad, bouncing around the country with his family, ultimately spending the majority of his formative years in Tennessee and Alaska. After studying mechanical engineering in college, he dove into manufacturing, heading up efforts at brands like Burton Snowboards, Skullcandy, and Owlet Baby Care. In his off-hours, you can find him tending to his family’s beehives, spending time out in nature fishing and riding his dirt bikes. He lives in the mountains of Utah with his wife Melissa, two of his four children, Weston, Spencer, Clara, and Taran, and their French Bulldog Sophie.

Julia McCracken - Co-Founder/Director of Marketing

Julia grew up in New Jersey (South Jersey to be exact…). After attending Rutgers University, she jumped into marketing, starting in the non-profit world, then branching out to both the music and publishing industries. As a serious music fan and a self-described “rabid” audiobook listener, Know was the perfect blend of her passions. When she’s not enjoying the mountains, you can find her reading, BBQing, or buying and selling antiques. She lives in the mountains of Utah with her husband John, Golden Retriever Special Agent Dale Cooper, and her two flat-faced cats, Ming the Merciless and Wicket.
