james avery wilhelm

I have a bachelor's in english literature and master's in writing with emphasis on publishing. I'm currently living in the Greater Atlanta Area with my wife and our four fur-babies (two cats and two dogs).

I am a fashion enthusiast, a (vinyl) record collector, and an avid University of Kansas basketball fan. I have passion for literature & storytelling, art & design, social justice, and personal/spiritual growth. I try to incorporate those passions into everything I do.

what i do

I work for LOMA developing elearning products for various designation courses in the insurance and retirement industries. My pet project as of late is building a custom CLI (command line interface) automation app using Perl/JavaScipt/Node thats converts Word template styles to HTML/CSS/EPUB. The rest of my time is spent on freelance and personal projects.

In the past I have developed ebook titles for Macmillan Higher Education's online learning platfoorm, developed WordPress themes from scratch, designed and developed trade ebook titles, and implemented digital-first workflow processes for publishers. I'm always looking for new projects that will expand my skill-set and challenge me.

Upcoming plans include expanding my media development skills into motion graphics and animation with an end goal of creating serious games and similuations for future learning and development projects.
