Beginning his studies in architecture at University College Dublin, James worked for three of the world's leading architects and taught M.Arch students in digital design. After spending one year at the Architectural Association in London, James decided to pursue an alternative path starting successfully on Kickstarter and recieving a grant from Startup-Chile. Invited to speak on entrepreneurship and design at General Assembly, Google Campus and various leading universities, James is a proponent of how design is re-shaping commerce. He filters his thirst for generalist knowledge as an avid fan of TED, co-organising TEDxLondon and advising TEDxDublin. When not working, James is a keen outdoor endurance swimmer. He attempted the Channel Swim from England to France, but was unfortunately dragged by strong currents in the wrong direction towards Holland, abandoning the attempt 36km from shore.
