Hi, I'm James 👋

I'm a podcaster, video creator and marketer. By day, I'm part of the Growth Team at VEED. By night, I run various different side businesses.

Indie Bites is my podcast, Striqo is my podcast editing service and Whitstable Craft Co is what I do when I need to get away from the screen.

I love starting and building side projects (maybe too much) and I'll make some mistakes as I go. I like to share my thoughts on my blog, which contains candid updates on my progress, failures and general musings.

I also listen to a lot of podcasts, here's what I'm listening to currently.

My side projects are funded by sponsorships on my Indie Bites podcast, and my membership you can find here.

I spend a lot of time on the internet, so send out a weekly (or so) email containing my finds for the week and updates from my blog. If you're interested in marketing, podcasting, technology and building side-projects, then I think you'll like my posts.


Indie Bites - podcast

Short, bite-sized conversations (15 mins) with indie hackers that have started small, profitable and bootstrapped businesses. You'll learn how they come up with ideas, what they do to validate, find those first customers and make a sustainable income.

Whitstable Craft Co - ecommerce business

It all started with a tweet. My hobby project where I handmake leather goods. It's therapuetic, gets me away from the screen and I make a physical product with my hands. Plus, if you buy one it will last a lifetime.

Striqo - podcasting service

Started back in 2017 when I got my first video production client. Since then I have been taking work through Striqo and steadily growing my client base. [Currently not taking on any new clients].

Canterbury Digest - newsletter

Canterbury's local news, delivered to your inbox, every week. An online news publication I started it to share the news in my local city.

YouTube - videos

I've been making YouTube videos for longer than all my other projects. I now only use two channels; one for personal and another for technology.
