Hi, I'm James!

James Seppi

I am a software developer in Austin, Texas, currently working at 18F to help transform the way the federal goverment does digital services. My main areas of practice are web-based geospatial development and full stack JavaScript.

Nearly all of my code is open source, and I enjoy contributing to other open source projects.

In my free time, I'm a beginner fiddle player, an aspirational rock climber, an enthusiastic traveler, and a decent home cook and beer brewer.

Other interesting tidbits:

  • My wife and I spent six months living at 10,000 feet in Huaraz, Peru, while working on an Engineers Without Borders project to help local communities adapt to climate change.
  • I have a Master of Engineering degree in Environmental and Water Resources Engineering from the University of Texas.
  • My wife and I swept the awards at the 24th Annual Lone Star Vegetarian Chili Cook-Off.
  • As an undergraduate I studied abroad in Hangzhou, China, and I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Chinese (but I'm extremely out of practice).
