About James Lau

James Lau is a traditional graphic designer (print) by trade turned developer over the past decade. The Kool-Aide design and tech drink was the preferred consumption of choice early in his career. Diving into any hot piece of technology that helped build the web. Everything from WordPress, Drupal, Squarespace, React.js, Angular.js, Vue.js, etc. was the norm.

Throughout his journey, he’s worked at various companies from small-scale start-ups to large enterprise-level corporations. Learning the ropes of how organizations function and discovering what’s needed to drive a project from kick-off to completion. Lately, with a bit of grey wisdom to share, we fast forward to more recent times, James has come full circle by choosing WordPress as the go-to development platform of choice for any client who needs a good web presence. A late bloomer in interacting with the WordPress community, but a longtime user of WordPress in general.

Primary clients of focus are mainly in the education, health, government, and non-profit space. The old days of creating websites to sell a pair of shoes during a new campaign season are in the past. What drives James’s passion these days, is by assisting client’s needs in elevating their business whose mission is to help out a community or society as a whole. Building for a cause.

When not being a robot by day, James spends his time being a human during nights and weekends with his son and wife: watching movies, playing board games, and video games, and cooking random food recipes from oldie cookbooks dug up from yard sales.
