James now considers himself more a business person than a techie, having spent the last 8 years focusing on growing Systemagic and developing its staff, services and working with clients to make sure they get the best from technology. He still chooses his moments to impress the team with his super-techie skills though! He is dad to Sophie, enjoys running, golf and is a huge Formula 1 fan.
Quick fire questions answered by James
What do you do when you’re not in the office?
Aside from being a busy dad I love riding motorbikes, running, fishing and watching Formula 1. Bikes and fishing have taken a back seat since we had our little girl– luckily she loves watching the F1 though!
What is your favourite piece of tech?
My iPhone – although more recently I’m spending far less time on it than previously as I try to digitally detox regularly.
If you could move your desk anywhere in the world where would it be?
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!)
What would your superpower be?
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.
