James joined the Epicom team in March of 2009 as a Software Engineer and has greatly contributed to the success of several projects. His creative solutions, work ethic, and efficiency are noted by several clients for being fundamental factors to the overall satisfaction and success of the project.
“At Epicom, I like the diversity of the work and the diversity of the clients. Also I like that Sugar is essentially a framework, which you can mold to do many different things. This keeps tasks from becoming monotonous and routine,” says James.
James has a B.S. in Physics from Carnegie Mellon University.
