I co-founded and run a SAAS company and brought James on to write high quality content as well as grow our social media (Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat) audience. He rocks and works with a passion that is simply amazing. He's direct and to the point, and will get the job done!

I own a tech company specializing in drone technology. I came across some of James's viral answers on Quora and thought he'd be the perfect fit for our little tech startup. He's a machine! He routinely churns out high quality, in-depth articles several times a week. Not only that but we are also going to feature James in a video series on our new blog. Highly recommended!
