Social Media Manager James was born and bred in Nottinghamshire where he has lived all his life. He graduated in 2010 from the Nottingham Trent University with a degree in Media with Specialist Pathways and has a huge interest in all things digital.
After leaving University, James worked for a fashion import company as a junior brand manager before joining a digital marketing agency as a campaign manager. More recently he has been employed specifically in the e-commerce sector before joining MoreNiche to utilise his social media experience.
James is rarely separated from his phone and laptop, and like many people, checking his social media is the first thing he does in the morning and the last thing he does at night.
In his spare time James enjoys experimenting with multimedia, including recording music. He is very keen on sports and can be found enjoying a round of golf on sunny days. He’s also been known to partake in the odd game of five-a-side. He loves TV and film, particularly documentaries and factual films and enjoys reading anything to do with history.
