ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm James

Ever since growing up watching entrepreneurs and inventors being yelled at by angel investors on Dragon’s Den, I’ve had one sole ambition: to make a difference through business.

Through working as a Business Development Manager at a medium-sized commercial cleaning business and studying a Data Science and Computer Science degree, I’ve equipped myself with skills that I hope will help me realise that dream.

I’m currently working on an array of start-ups that range from a high-tech software application to an opportunistic accommodation business.
