I’m James Thompson and I build solutions for the web. With over five years experience working on web projects of all sizes I am confident I can help your organization find the right solution to whatever problems you face.

My skills include XHTML/CSS, Ruby on Rails and Javascript development with my biggest area of emphasis being on web content management and application customization.
