My name is James Padolsey. I was born in London and after much umming-and-ahhing, and a fair bit of travelling, I’ve made my way back here. I enjoy nature, technology, photography, sociology and their many intersections.

I currently work as a software engineer at Facebook. In the past I’ve been employed at places like Stripe and Twitter. I’m always interested in new ideas and projects (especially in areas of education & volunteering) so please get in touch.

I recently build a book recommendation engine, a book like foo, so please check it out.

Me, elsewhere: twitter, flickr, github, PGP: 053D0BD2.
