Why are we good at somethings and not others? Are we shaped by the things we can't do? Do our inefficiencies make us stronger at the things we are already good at?

After graduating from St Martins in 1981, James set up a design studio and became a developer, creating over 200 studios, live/work spaces and apartments for the creative pioneers of early Shoreditch.

James moved to West Wales with partner Sian and their 4 boys in in 2005 to satisfy a hankering for playing with axes and woodsmoke.  

He is currently working on re-inventing Cardigan riverside.
