JAMES LE SAGE
Born in 1947, James is originally from Massachusetts but moved to the west coast with his parents in 1955 and is a graduate of Seaside High School. Following college studies at Monterey Peninsula College, where he studied theatre under Morgan Stock, Le Sage worked as a traveling rock and roll musician before being drafted into the Army to serve in Vietnam. Upon his military discharge, he returned to Monterey to continue his theatre training and to performing as a “one man band” in several prominent Monterey venues.
When the call of the road once again beckoned, he spent several decades as a traveling musician and radio jingles producer, eventually landing in Missouri where he got married and continued playing music including with Willie Nelson during his Farm Aid concerts.
During his many travels, Le Sage remained committed to the communities he found himself in, often volunteering as a media producer. While in the Reno area, for instance, he created the “Community Spotlight” and “Carson Kids” programs.
For the last ten years, he has been a resident of Monterey and has produced many local cable TV programs and showcases including “Le Sage Local Coverage”, “Yeti-files”, “Victorious Magical Workshop”, “Outa-Space”, and “Rolling Along / My Show”. Besides producing, Le Sage also volunteers with AMP Media as a camera operator and is actively involved in local non-profits, grant seeking and event planning activities.
