Memes, music and the markets – James’ interests are as diverse as his talents. Known at Castleford as our most experienced property and financial markets editor, James also dabbles as a freelance pop-culture writer for New Zealand outlets The Wireless and The Spinoff – and still DJs the odd set around Auckland. Prior to joining Castleford, he was a Broadcast Analyst for ISentia, a role that included preparing daily press briefings for the office of the Australian Prime Minister. As one of Castleford’s three Assistant Editors, he ensures our clients receive content on time, on brief and to a high standard.
Things we didn’t know about James before we wrote this profile: he loves music by Kelela, has a fascination for Google algorithms (and is currently teaching himself Google Apps script), and is one-quarter Fijian.
