James McPherson is an Information Technology & Multimedia graduate with industry experience. He has developed a broad range of skills, from Communications & Content creation to Ubuntu server Administration & Front End Web Development.

James has experience in a diverse number of areas, ranging from Technical Support, Marketing and Media Promotions, Front-End Web Development, Windows Administration, Ubuntu Remote Service Administration, to Security Control Room Operations, Customer Service Operations, and Crowd Control and Professional Fitness studies. He is also the sole proprietor in a Video Production venture, in addition to having over two-million views on his niche YouTube Channel.

James began his working life in 2012, working in retail and washing cars whilst studying. From 2013 to 2018, James lived independently while continuing his studies. He worked a variety of positions to support this lifestyle choice, including a casual position at Wilson Parking Burswood every Friday to Sunday (2014-2018). Whilst working at Wilson Parking and studying, James completed a Cert II in Security Operations & Crowd Control. Later, in 2016, he became the youngest Security Control Room Operator at Threat Protect, a job involving a high volume of calls and critical decision-making capability. Looking to progress in this position as an adjunct to studies, James acquired a position as a Belmont Wilson Security Operations Controller at the Head Quarters of Wilson Security In Western Australia.

Deciding to concentrate on his computer development skills, James retired from his Security position and began teaching himself Front End Angular JS development, HTML & CSS development, acquiring a position with a local Start-up for a short period. Building on this, in the final unit of his degree, James gained a credit from UWA’s FABLE program where he Interned as a Communications, Media & Marketing Officer for UWA’s Career Centre, achieving a high result and a glowing recommendation from the Unit Co-ordinator, Peter Robinson (2018).

Following Graduation, James began Post-Graduate Study in an adjacent field, Cyber Security, before withdrawing in favour of a return to the workforce. He then secured a three -month contract with Dental Health Services as a Technical Support Officer in 2020.

James holds a Bachelor of Communications & Media from The University of Western Australia and has made progress towards a Post-graduate Diploma of Cyber Security from Edith Cowan University. James has Certificates in Traffic Management, Traffic Control, Security Operations, Crowd Control, a Certificate 3 & 4 in Fitness.
