Expertise: Front-end Software Development
James graduated from the University of Minnesota with a B.A. in Theatre Arts focusing on directing. Desiring a career change that would allow a different blending of artistic and analytical thinking, he retooled his skillset at a software bootcamp in 2018. Following a passion regarding the intersectionality of agriculture, technology and data, James moved from his job as a mobile app developer at a small startup in Minneapolis and joined the GEMS team fall of 2019. Currently, he is working on improving the user interface of the GEMS platform. When he isn’t at work you can find him cooking and baking in the winter and biking Minnesota’s many bike trails in the warmer months.
