Hi! I'm James, a Product Manager & Designer.

Picture of James

I like building new products. In my current role at Booking.com, I've been responsible (alongside great teams) for building Travel Communities, the Booking Assistant and our SaaS Enterprise Messaging tools for accomodation partners.

In person, I write and speak and I've been lucky enough to speak about business, building products and UX in countries like the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Estonia, Poland & Russia.

I’m currently based in the Netherlands and enjoy technology, photography, traveling and climbing.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with James on building a product from scratch and I learned a lot about building scalable MVP's. He’s great at thinking of solutions that compromise between business & user value.

Of the hundreds of designers I have known, the respect he has from me is reserved exclusively for the top few and I know I'm not alone in feeling that way. Wonderful designer. Wonderful guy.

James is an incredible designer and the reason for that is the fact that he isn't just a designer. He is able to flow from defining product strategy and requierements to sitting down with a dev and going through code
