Hi! My name is James Norman Vladimir Cash.

I usually go by jamesnvc on the internet.

I’m the co-founder of a software company called Bloom that is working on a number of things – some that are public at the moment are Braid chat and Viva Vocab.

I live in Toronto, Canada and have lived here my whole life (except a brief internship in California).

In addition to programming, I enjoy strength training & competing in various strength sports - powerlifting, strongman, and highland games. I used to run marathons & do triathlons, but I am approximately 40kg heavier than I was then, so not so much with the running now. Still love cycling and swimming though!
