Biography

James is a multi-discipled SEO (creatively geeky) who loves to understand how things work and rail against ‘impossible’. His concentration is on where SEO might be years from now and how he can work towards making that happen faster.

 

He is Head of Innovation at Verve Search, an international SEO agency based in London that’s worked with companies including Expedia, Stylepit, the BBC and Uber. He builds incredibly buggy code that the amazing team at Verve then turn into actually functioning breakthroughs.

 

Creatively, Verve’s crafted projects including the world’s first gigalapse image, Malmo Castle’s interactive tour and an international survey of language use encompassing over 2 million responses. Technically, Verve’s been involved in the migration and international roll-out of some of the world’s best known brands.
