SEASONED FRONT END DEVELOPER & DESIGNER WITH OVER 15 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN DIGITAL ADVERTISING, INTERACTIVE DEVELOPMENT, AND CREATIVE PRODUCTION.
Hi, I'm James and I love building things.
I have over 15 years experience in digital advertising; planning, designing and developing creative experiences for any industry vertical one could imagine. I enjoy design as much as I enjoy programming, problem solving, typography, animation, video editing, and creating engaging content to tell a brand's story through all platforms.
I flourish in any setting where multiple and diverse skills are needed in ONE person. This portfolio is a very small sample of my total projects so please feel free to reach out if there's anything in particular that you would like to see!
