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.
