Just a Few of My Skills

Creative/Art Direction
I have spent years honing my craft and specialize in direction of creative teams and projects for just about any need including eCommerce, email marketing, photo shoots, and daily production to mention just a few.


Team Building
I have been lucky enough to build multiple teams over the years, and have enjoyed more than the work we create, the opportunity to mentor young talent. I find that I often learn from them as much as they learn from me.


Digital Strategy
Not every problem has a perfect answer. Having a well planned strategy is part of my game plan every time. Finding the best fit with staff, technology, well aligned partnerships, and the right message is the only answer.


The Actual Work
I have no problem rolling up my sleeves and getting to work. In the majority of cases I am capable of doing the work I task to others, which helps with communication of tasks and understanding what it takes to accomplish them.


The Skills

Skills of Passion

Talk to anyone who is successful and they will say loving what you do is the only way. The passion I have for design, team building, and solving creative problems drives my every day.

UI + UX For all

Designing for the user is the most proliferate process in design today. From simple ads and emails to complex applications, I have led teams to great success, building  from scratch and complete overhauls resulting in millions of added revenues.

Vendor Selection + Relationship Building

Choosing the right partners and best technologies is very challenging in the ever changing digital environment. I have many years of experience in leveraging both for the betterment of my teams and projects.

Equipment Acquisition + Studio Builds

The right tools for the job can make a world of difference. I have led equipment acquisitions for all types of projects from computers and software to more complex items like editing bays, camera gear, or photo and video studio build outs.

“James is hands down the best boss I've ever had the pleasure to work under. With James, you're not just another number but a carefully picked part of a team that was specifically put together to work well and efficiently. He's willing to give his employees a chance, train them, and mentor them directly while also encouraging them to pursue their passions outside of work. He fosters growth and personal achievements over how much he can squeeze out of you, which makes for a comfortable, safe, and secure feeling work environment – a rare gem in any field.”

“The one thing that stands out the most about James is that he is truly devoted to his creative team. He manages his team in a way that he is able to be professional and supportive, while showing the concern and care of a big brother on a personal level. He selects his team and supports them in a way that negates the need for micro-management, and is always ready to provide support with the creative projects they are working on.”

“Awesome job on the site! Seriously, it looks great. The zoom functionality alone is enough to make it far superior to our competitors”

John Huber
“At Furniture Row, James helped me transform a neglected photo space into a professional working studio that in turn allowed me to double and then triple production within the first few months. We worked long hours together over the holiday season, James putting in time to train and assist me when I know he could have easily been enjoying time away with his family. His actions impressed upon me the importance he places on teamwork, support and trust in his people to accomplish both their work and personal goals.”

“I had a chance to look at your new site this weekend and the responsive design aspect of the site is very smooth. This concept is fairly new for Commerce although it has been around for other content based sites for a while and to my knowledge this is the first live RWD based site that is on ATG.”
