I’m James Brooks. I build epic developer tools.

I’m a software developer who goes by @jbrooksuk on the internet.

I work at Laravel, primarily working on Forge and Envoyer. You may also see me contributing to the documentation, framework and other packages.

I live in Staffordshire, United Kingdom with my wife, two daughters and cocker-spaniel.

I’m also the host of Happy Dev, a podcast that talks about mental health in the software development industry. Advocating for mental health and suicide awareness are two of my deepest passions.
