Web developer, adventure, snowboarder, minimalist, gamer, ...

Leicester, United Kingdom

Mooloop + Jumplead


The name's James, but everyone calls me Jacko or nojacko when online.

I'm a web developer from Leicester who loves travelling, snowboarding, music, gaming, cigars, amongst countless other things. I graduated from the University of Leicester with a degree in Computer Science, B.Sc. (Hons). Minimalism & science are my cults.

In 2013 I quit my job and spent 6 months travelling the USA & Canada, where I had an amazing time and managed to visit 48 of the 50 US states.

Back home now, and working at Mooloop. Plans for future trips are brewing. They'll be shorter but far more diverse.

Currently focusing on becoming the minimalist I desire to be and generally living my life how I see fit.
