I have known James Lickwar for almost ten years. When I first met James he was the crew chief on a professional AMA motorcycle road racing team, and managed and prepared a racing motorcycle for my Venezuelan nephew. James was able to communicate the actions of the machine and rider using the computer model and its inputs, and more importantly explain this process to my nephew,  who was new to this level of competition.

James could explain in layman’s terms the most complex extrapolation the computer could produce, so as to extract the best performance from both the machine and the rider, all the while maintaining his cool demeanor under the stress of racing competition.

In the summer of 2014 I took over the ownership and marketing of the AMA Sacramento Mile motorcycle race in it 100th year of competition. This was done less than 60 days prior to the event, and James/Desmo Studio stepped in and created the website and numerous tracking programs. James further searched out numerous marketing opportunities in social media to expand the reach of our event.

I wholeheartedly recommend James and Desmo Studio.

As content creators, we never wanted to have to manage, we only wanted to post our content. James customized a template to exactly meet our needs. We also challenged James to create an automated sales process to sell our video downloads. James delivered, and now our customers can enjoy their products immediately after their purchase. We’ve been very pleased working with James as he understands our needs and delivers time after time.

The number of people who claim to be the best web guy anywhere may be as large as all the grains of sand on Earth.

You and I want a computer/web guy who is smart and hard working. I chose James because I knew him for many years as a professional motorcycle road racer, mechanic and crew chief. In a field made up only of self motivated hard working innovative people, James stood out as a winner and a nice guy.

I hired him when I bought Lindemann Engineering. The website I inherited had been hacked. He unhacked it while creating the new, which combined the original site and my EDventure Racing Blogger blog. It’s black and white with no bells and whistles. Direct and to the point, just like me. He did it on time and for the price quoted.

James Lickwar has been the webmaster since 2009. When he first took on my company’s website we had security issues which he quickly rectified. Since then he has guided us through e-commerce obstacles, migrated us to a secure and effective shopping cart, moved us to a faster host that supports our platform, and numerous other tasks. He has educated us about working on our own website. He is trusted with secure information.

James impressed me early on because he interviewed me about the specifics of what I wanted on our company shopping cart and website. When I wanted something that was not part of the shopping cart, he researched and integrated 3rd party extensions. He readily estimated the costs and timeline, and followed through on everything he said he would do. I have consistently had that experience throughout our business relationship.

I like to work with people who are knowledgeable, listen well, explain well, follow through, and are always improving their skill sets. Based on those criteria, James Lickwar is exceptional.
