Hello, I'm James Blackwood aka (cleatsandcode)

I'm a front end developer based in London and when possible, the Isle of Wight. I have over 10 years experience in web, print, motion and branding development and design.

Below is some information on my skills, notable clients and my social media stuff. Also, some contact details

Aside from work, I love to spend time on the water either sailing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, RIB boating and anything else that floats! I also cycle quite a bit. I also make terrible, pointless robots.

About the name? I share it with a deceased singer, so as to not steal his thunder, I use this handle which sums up the sailing/cycling and code. I didn't say it would be a good story, did I?
