James McIntosh

James majored in Fine Art at the Florida State University and minored in Graphic Design. It just so happened to be the infancy of the Internet when he graduated and Web Designers/Developers were scarce. When he realized he could merge both art and computers as a career, James saw the opportunity to expand on his passions, and taught himself how to code. He has never looked back.

Now with over 25 years experience in the industry, James has not only proven himself with an extensive client portfolio, but he continues to thrive while striving to keep up with the latest technologies.

When not creating art or coding websites, James can be found putting in the miles on the pavement. Running helps keep him focused and healthy. His goal is to qualify for the Boston Marathon!
