Founder

Born and raised near Birmingham, UK, James moved to Germany in 2006 for a job opportunity. Fluent in English and German, since living here he has figured out how to submit his own tax returns, been hired for 3 different jobs, bought 2 apartments, encountered and solved endless random bureaucratic issues, and has helped many friends do most of the above! This gave him the idea to start Live Work Germany, originally as a blog, and now expanding as a business offering online services to the expat community.
