Hi, I'm James. I like to build stuff.
I have never taken the traditional path in life. I got kicked out of high school for hacking computers and later completed a masters degree with top honors at Penn State. I am both a developer and a designer, a musician and a poet and an accomplished media artist who is not afraid of the commercial world.

I thought that there are probally a lot of people dealing with dynamic data across a variety of different languages and templating engines. I wanted to address some common issues that I come across using the ZURB Foundation 5 grid and how to solve them.Read more »
I was taking a look through the open issues for the ZURB Foundation 5.1 milestone on GitHub and I thought I would share with everyone things that could be coming in the 5.1 update.
