James Hafner

I’m a husband, father, and technology geek. I love coffee, space, and a good pair of headphones.

I specialize in building large-scale frontend architectures and blazing-fast interfaces. I have 10+ years experience developing with Open Source frameworks such as, WordPress, Ruby on Rails, Joomla, Foundation, jQuery, and Sass, as well as the hundreds of little libraries and apps those frameworks use to get stuff done.

People say I'm a hell of a nice guy. Drop me a line.

I am a Partner at State, an Austin, TX-based web design and development group.

State specializes in designing and building scalable and maintainable custom WordPress websites for awesome clients.

If you're looking for a medium/large WordPress site, logo design, or help navigating a complicated project, we can help. We've done just about everything before.

Fantastic clients are the reason I've been doing this for so long.

I love making a difference in people's lives, and I count myself lucky to be able to do it for a living. I've been fortunate enough to work with some crazy talented people in my career.
