See what my clients are saying about my work.

“Great experience working with James. Excellent communication skills and understanding of his domain. He quickly diagnosed and resolved an issue that two previous Upwork contractors were unable to resolve.”

Upwork Client

“James was professional, remained in communication, was able to meet with clients, and demonstrated flexibility in his solutions. My project benefited greatly from his participation, and I feel lucky that I found such a knowledgeable resource! Would hire again.”

Upwork Client

“I had been looking for a developer to work with for a couple year before I found James Fawks. It is very refreshing for me to work with someone that does what they say they will while also bringing additional value with insights into the industry of software development and also business development in general. He has taken the time to get to know both my business and my needs as a business owner, and addressed them to beyond expectations. Highly recommended.”
