I'm James - a creator, product manager and programmer based in London.
Since I started building software at University, I've been engaged with the process of taking products all the way from conception to execution, turning my hand along the way to branding, research, design and, of course, writing code.
I've built products and experiences for startups and small businesses as well as for global brands like Microsoft and Nokia, working on my own and with teams both large and small.
On personal projects I've built an alarm for people who fall asleep on trains, an app that guesses your age and a charity advent calendar, to name a few. I also started Foundbite, a service which allowed users to share and explore the sounds of the world around them. Our small team received backing from Microsoft, Nokia and IdeaLab, with sounds and images shared from all over the world
I'm currently CTO at SailConnect, where I'm leading a team building fantastic tools for sailing clubs and sailors to use all over the world. On the side I'm currently developing Caardvark, a service that allows you to send postcards to loved ones using a chatbot!
