Think James is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Alastair Trueger
We worked together  •  MBA Candidate, Haas School of Business, President of Berkeley Entrepreneur Assoc., and CEO, Teaman & Co. Passionate about entrepreneurship.
James is superlatively organized, brilliant, fantastic at coding, and endlessly patient. He's the sort of guy who's at the heart of things ... - even if he isn't the loudest. I've enjoyed working with him enormously.
Andrew Goodman
They're my school  •  Product Manager Intern, Nest Labs. Previously Product Manager, Webs. Harvard grad.
James is one of the most intelligent and thoughtful members of the 2015 UC Berkeley Haas class. He can paint a unique, compelling long term ... product vision, while simultaneously creating a detailed, methodical path of how to get there. What's more, he can build the product himself. James is a sharp, constantly evolving programmer and, as an example, is currently studying AI techniques with vicious rigor for his newest project. James is always willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done and I believe would make a fantastic partner for any entrepreneurial venture.
Peter Minor
We worked together  •  Co-Founder, The Foundry@CITRIS and Graduate Student Researcher, UC Berkeley. University of California, Berkeley grad.
James continues to surprise me with his intelligence and abilities. He has strong conviction and is a driving force for his company. Its bee ... n a pleasure working with him!
Bobby Davis
They're my current cofounder  •  MBA Candidate, 2015, University of California, Berkeley, Haas School of Business. University of California, Berkeley grad.
Intellectually curious, always looking to figure out how things work. Able to see the big picture and execute on the details. Prioritizes ... individual and team efforts. Driven to understand the customer and how new products and technologies work to solve problems.
Liz Klinger
They're my current cofounder  •  Sales Consultant, Passion Parties and Independent Consultant, Design and Communication Consulting. Dartmouth College grad.
I've known James for nearly a decade now, and he still surprises me with his creativity, perspective and humor. What's more, he's also able ... to communicate and connect with others extremely well. And, by the way, as a programmer and business person, he gets shit done. There's no one I could recommend more highly than James as a co-founder and as someone who has the potential to do great things.
Alic Chen
They're my advisor  •  Co-Founder, The Foundry@CITRIS. University of California, Berkeley grad. University of California, Berkeley grad.
James possesses the technical expertise, business acumen as well as leadership qualities to be a great entrepreneur.

Branden McIntyre
They're my school  •  Co-founder Jetpad, Student at UC Berkeley, Obsessed with travel.
Branden is incredibly driven and wicked sharp. When I first met him, he was flying between Seattle and Berkeley for work and school -- talk ... about dedication. In terms of his abilities, from macro to micro, I've been impressed by how well he understands broad technology trends, grasps the ins and outs of an enormous variety of businesses, and reads people and rooms. Even more importantly, you can always know where he stands -- he's one of the most honest and straight shooting people I know. It may be hard to find smart people, but it's even harder to find smart people who are willing to call things as they see it.

Erica McLain
They're my school  •  Founder: PATHworks (Education startup), US Olympian, Haas MBA & Stanford grad. Fluffy do-gooder with a passion for youth development!
Erica is a driven, passionate individual who cares deeply about creating meaningful social impact. Her background on the US Olympic team sho ... uld tell you something about her drive. My personal interactions with her have always impressed on me how sharp she is as an individual. These characteristics are critical for great entrepreneurs and Erica processes them in droves.
