About Me

James In Digital is James Schumacher, a digital artist and freelance writer. I write reviews of movies, video games, music, books and anything else that strikes me, though the game industry is my focus.

I am a resident of Clackamas, Oregon a few miles south and east of Portland.  I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in the area of Game Art and Design.  This means I have both technological and artistic training, primarily in 3D and Graphic Design software.  I currently work freelance as a blogger/article writer, usually covering the fields of Gaming, Film, Books and Television.  I also have a job working as a simple web designer/graphic designer and content writer at an internet marketing firm where I primarily work with Photoshop and WordPress.

I have a lifelong interest in all the areas I write about.  As early as 4 and 5 I had my parents purchase me records to listen to in all kinds of genres.  To this day I can find music in almost any style that I like.  The same goes for films and games.  I watch foreign films, from European art house to Hong Kong action cinema and manage to force myself to watch a majority of the Hollywood blockbusters; even enjoying my fair share.  I play games on both console and PC in a variety of styles from the “hardcore” to the casual.

When it comes to Literature I read classic Poetry from the likes of Milton and Dante, biographies, fantasy and crime/detective works.  I have recently taken up going back and reading the classics that I have missed.

I love the Pacific Northwest and it’s beautiful scenery.  I don’t get to travel out of state very often, so I enjoy spending time on the scenic and historic Oregon Coast.

I am available for freelance work now.  Just contact me if you are looking for an article on a specific topic, or want to send me a product to review.  I can also do photo and graphic editing, as well as 3D modeling and texture work.  Send me an e-mail and I can let you know rates based on the scope of your project.

    Hey there, Just making an enquiry about sending in game soundtracks for review.
    We’ve just finished working on the score and sound design for a new IOS game called ‘Half-Inch Heist’.
    Here’s the gameplay teaser trailer..

    If it would be something you might be interested in reviewing let us know.
