Nice to meet you. I’m James.

I’m a product manager, audio/video editor, and technology enthusiast. Based in Seattle, WA.

I do many, many things.

Focused on clearly defining products with a truly professional presentation layer, I believe a lot of modern technology is lacking human connection. Everything is at our fingertips except each other. I’d like to change that.

Product Management

With a technical background that spans software and hardware, I aim to deliver products that customers can’t stop using. The perfect product should include well written documentation, transparency, and an unsurpassed user experience.

Project Management

Over the course of my career, I’ve dialed in the right balance between managing project resources and timelines in order to meet customer expectations, all while¬†focusing on my team’s morale and productivity.

Operations Support

Nothing is more satisfying than analyzing workflows, and finding ways to tighten the chains while not overburdening the team’s day-to-day.

This is where I excel.

Audio/Video Editing

Editing has been a hobby of mine since I was very young. Anyone can slap a few videos and a song together. I use a razor (and a little obsession) for precision quality output…every time.

A few of my skills

I have a deep-rooted history in Linux administration, though I’ve extended my passion to help develop human processes for effective operations.

How I Work

In any industry, there’s a constant battle between quality output and egos. I gravitate toward teams that are focused on what we can do together. Simply put, I just want to make great things in a collaborative approach with whatever team I’m a part of.

Getting an Oscar probably feels pretty good, but what we learn from each other in this little film called Life is far more rewarding. </cheese>

Personal Life

Outside of my professional life, I have quite a few hobbies.

  • Exploring the west coast with my wife and our french bulldog
  • Screenwriting
  • Analog sound synthesis
  • Record collecting
