We had the good fortune of connecting with James Wright and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi James, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Most of my employment experiences taught me that most companies didn’t have any interest in developing my value to the company. It really just seemed to make more sense to appeal to the customer directly and quit paying people who didn’t care about me to take a cut of labor. Obviously traditional jobs do provide services to employees in terms of keeping them lined out with work and taking care of taking out taxes as well but I would ultimately rather pay my self to do these things and I will also work much harder to protect my job in the instance of a business downturn.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I think I’ve always held a fascination where art and technology intersect. My early teens as a guitarist in rock bands inspired an interest in audio engineering which by the early 2000s began to require extensive computer knowledge. Which in turn inspired the idea that if I could edit audio, I could edit video. In order to shoot video I needed to learn more about photography. And somewhere along the way to learning the aforementioned job skills I also built 40 monthly rehearsal rooms for bands in Fort Worth TX.
