About the Author

James Griffiths
James Griffiths

James Griffiths has been involved in the web/mobile development field for more years than he cares to admit having ventured into the industry not long after the collapse of the dot com bubble.

Over the years since then he has worked with a number of clients including Ben & Jerry's, Virgin Media, The British Science Association, EDF Energy, Rated People, Shelter and Evans Cycles on projects ranging from SEO, front-end development and UI design to website optimisation, custom CMS solutions and authoring mobile applications.

When he's not working with digital technologies James can be found keeping busy in the gym, reading books, hiking, developing new business ideas and occasionally trying to relive the fond memories of his teenage years with a spot or two of skateboarding.
