James is a Software Engineer on the Raster Foundry Team at Azavea.

He’s interested in typed functional programming and the ways it can be used to give everyone the superpower to write correct programs the first time, Euro board games, and custom Slack emojis for every purpose. Once he was pulled over in 20 degree weather in Boston for making an illegal but completely safe right turn on red on a bicycle. He received a warning.

James studied Economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He comes to Azavea by way of RTI International and Picwell, as an Economist at the former and a Data Scientist at the latter.
