I'm James Wang, a Taiwanese-born designer and coder with a passion for clean and functional websites. I graduated in 2012 from Boston University and accomplished a Master Degree of E-Commerence. I was elected Taiwanese Student Association President in 2011. During my time at college and graduate school I discovered and embraced my creativeness, innovative ideas within the web.

My passion lies in the front/middle layers, because that is where the design and coding combination lies -- the aspects that require deep thought. E-Commerce is an industry that combines three dimensions - business, technology and design. Those are what I am interested in.


CS technolgy and business

I am a hybrid person. I have both technology background (coding, computer science) and business background (management, analysis and marketing) from various universities and graduate schools.

J's Bar

       It is a website project for my multimedia and online marketing class. I choose the topic which is combined two things I would like to do - making friends and mixing cocktails. It is not a real bar but it is a cozy place for me and my friends. In the end, I got "A+" for this class. The website and Facebook fan page are still alive. Welcome to visit and like it. Enjoy !
