People call me 'Jamie', 'James' or 'Jay' depending upon how you know me. I have profiles on LinkedIn, Academia.edu, twitter, Google+ and Facebook.

My professional title relates to my 10 years experience in Marketing, UX design and development of web technologies (Level 6 Dip DigM M IDM). Yet like most internet representations, this title does not, and cannot, capture the depth of the person behind it. My career in Digital Design has been substantially influenced by a field of study known as Cybernetics and Behavioural Economics. Study of these topics is a by-product of another profound interest in my life: Martial Arts.

There's really too much detail to go into, so I thought it best to simply list some of the most important things you should know. I intend to write a separate entry for my Design Portfolio which I shall link here in due course.
