James is a small business marketing professional with a Bachelors of Commerce from Queen’s University and has been working with YDC since late 2016. Although his background was not originally in kitchen design, he has become Sunday warrior for YDC, holding down the showroom and answering client questions. He has a soft spot for transitional kitchens with mosaic floors and/or backsplash. But he knows his girlfriend would never allow it (too hard to clean apparently). From ads to marketing campaigns James is the guy you want to contact if you have any questions about YDC’s online presence.
