James considers himself more a business person than a techie, having spent the last 11 years focusing on growing Systemagic and developing its staff, services and working with clients to make sure they get the best from technology. Previous to that he was a techie for 7 years and still chooses his moments to jump on the helpdesk and impress the team with his super-techie skills and he also sneakily got himself certified in Microsoft Azure and Google Ads recently too! He is Dad to Sophie, enjoys running, golf and is a huge Formula 1 fan.
Aside from being a busy dad I love running, fishing and watching Formula 1. Motorbikes and fishing have taken a back seat since we had our little girl – luckily she loves watching the F1 though!
My iPad – I try to digitally detox regularly so my phone isn’t as important as it once was but the iPad is great for both business (meeting notes, working on the move, having access to all my files) and for using at home.
New York – it’s my favourite place in the world and I’ve always dreamt of having an office in Manhattan. (this could explain the various New York pictures in his office!)
I’m not sure if he counts as a superhero but I’ve always wanted some of Inspector Gadget’s gadgets especially his go-go-gadget roller skates, go-go-gadget helicopter and go-go-gadget arms.
