I am James Thackway, a computer science graduate from the University of Nottingham. I am primarily a web designer and developer looking for work in front end web development, having previously worked freelance in website development and maintenance. I think there is more to web design than pure functionality.
In my free time I work on programming projects (see my github) and write articles on otaku media (see my blogs below).
This site is a landing page to link together all of my projects and accounts online. If you would like to contact me please see my contact page here.
