James Howes

Production Manager

Hi, I’m James and I’m the Production Manager here at bda.


Hi, I’m James and I’m the Production Manager here at bda . Being a people person, I like a good chat, and love getting to know others – something that’s been an important part of all my roles. I’ve been working in the creative industry, mainly within studio management, since leaving university – where I studied advertising and public relations. There are many various aspects to my position, but one part I always love is a good brainstorm, and I feel it’s the best way to start any project, large or small.

Away from brainstorms and sometimes in storms of the rainy kind is Ruby, another of my loves. As a lively black Labrador, she keeps me and my partner fit with regular walks, whatever the weather – but I guess that’s character building. Sport is another one of my big passions – even though I don’t actively take part as much as I used to I love being an active observer. I’m a Northampton boy so I’m a proud supporter of the Saints and the phenomena that are the mighty underdogs of the Cobblers!

When my other half lets me in the kitchen, I enjoy cooking and trying out new recipes – using every piece of equipment is my speciality! I love everything there is to do with burgers, regularly trialling new ideas to find the perfect mix and accompaniments. I have a group of friends around me that love cooking too, so we often get together to eat and assess our creations, however dubious they may be…

Being awesome makes me hungry
