I’m James Kerti.
I’ve done a bunch of different things.
Let me tell you about them.
I do freelance website design, helping businesses build premium online subscription platforms using WordPress.
I also provide my clients with online marketing help and strategy, as I focus on enabling them to achieve the results they want, beyond just having a new website.
As a matter of background, I graduated from Villanova University with a computer science degree and worked at Oracle. I also completed Master’s coursework in computer science at both Villanova and Georgia Tech.
One of the coolest things I’ve done is working in basketball as a scout and strategic planning consultant.
Most of my basketball projects in recent years consisted of NBA-related consulting work, which include activities and projects such as:
- Live and video scouting of draft prospects for NBA teams
- Strategic advice and recommendations regarding personnel decisions and organizational future
- Film review and analysis for advance scouting and other internal purposes
- Research and strategic recommendations related to optimal strategy in the NBA Draft and free agency, player contract option decisions, market analysis, and more
I previously wrote about basketball scouting and analysis at a website I founded called HoopsThink.com.
I created it in 2013 to help aspiring scouts learn more about how to get started as a basketball scout.
I wrote a bunch of content about scouting, as well as a free basketball scouting guide called The Basketball Scout’s Cheat Sheet: The 4 Pillars of Effective Scouting. It includes some of my best advice and basketball scouting tips.
More About Me
I mostly use Arch Linux on my desktop and laptop.
I enjoy reading biographies and books about personal development, marketing, and geopolitics.
There’s never been a band like the Grateful Dead.
Previously, I lived in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Las Vegas, and Portland, OR.
I now live in Yachats, a small town on the Oregon Coast. I live with my wife Erin-Ashley, our five cats, and our robotic vacuum.
In Yachats, I was elected to City Council in November 2018 and began my four-year term in January 2019. I also serve on the board of the Yachats Academy of Arts & Sciences.
