Hello my names is James and I innovate within the health, hospice and end of life sector. I do this by following a research-led methodologies and building products and services around the needs of specific demographics, patients and user-groups.

I am passionate about using technology for good and a lot of my work explores how we can improve hospice and end of life care when utilising technology. I am the founder of The Digital Legacy Association which provides standards, frameworks and training for social care professionals and the general public. I also developed a resource called DeadSocial which provides tutorials and tools for those wanting to make plans for their digital assets and digital legacy.

I only work with charities and ethical organisations. If your charity or organisation has a mission to the better the world in which we live please feel free to get in touch.

I have written a number of papers, spoken on a variety of TV shows and contributed to various social media, healthcare and end of life publications. Some of my contributions include the BBC, CNN, The British Media Journal and The Guardian. I have advised the Labour party in how government can better support UK startups and consulted the Law Commission about changing UK law to embrace technology and the changing ways in which society communicates.
