James Paddock (alias Jimmy) is a British composer, Doom level designer and graphic artist. He has been active in the community since 2006. His most notable works are the megawad Jenesis, the Cacoward-winning independent game The Adventures of Square and many music tracks for various PWADs, including Sigil, Plutonia 2 and Back to Saturn X. He has enthusiastically promoted the creation of custom soundtracks for Doom project, setting up "speed MIDI sessions" in the fashion of speedmapping on the Doomworld forums, set and creating the Doom Musicians Guild. He also maintains "Jimmy's Jukebox", a ZDoom add-on containing the original MIDI soundtracks from the Doom engine games, some other games of the era (such as Rise of the Triad or Duke Nukem 3D), and many classic megawads such as Icarus: Alien Vanguard, Requiem, or Memento Mori. This jukebox allows to create custom or random soundtracks to listen to while playing mods which do not feature their own original soundtrack.

He was the recipient of the Espi Award for Lifetime Achievement at the 2019 Cacowards for his numerous contributions to the community.
