James Sismanes PNG

A small business owner by day and a full-time creative by night, James Sismanes is Australia’s archetypal one-man-band. The creative gatekeeper of music, story and make-believe, James founded the ImagiWorks agency in 2013, evolving his childhood hobbies into everyday crafts. Having sold over 300 tracks on the acclaimed AudioJungle platform and collaborated with a bevy of small businesses on their strategic blueprints, James is now poised and primed to arm-wrestle his very first love: storytelling.

James’ debut publication (The Art of Being Jonny) is available now from Amazon, Book Depository, Booktopia, Barnes & Noble and all major book stores.

When he’s not writing, producing, designing, sales-pitching and daydreaming like a world-saving superhero, James enjoys eating cheeseburgers and chicken parmigianas, conquering Xbox tournaments, watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S re-runs, catching Pokémon and turning his hair grey over FC Barcelona losses and masochistic Cleveland sports heartbreaks.
