Jim is a native of Chicago who lived in Los Angeles for 18 years where he performed vocals and played lead guitar in a locally popular garage band. Returning to Chicago in the late 90s, he worked in the airline industry where he traveled the world for free under the guise of conducting business. Upon retirement from his day job, Jim devoted himself to the craft of acting, first by enrolling in Meisner geared towards theater performance, followed by classes geared towards On-Camera performance, and Improv classes to enhance his performances in both media. Jim has appeared in two live stage shows, an award winning Short Film, Corporate Industrials, Web based commercials, and an episodic television show on network television. Jim continues his studies and coaching sessions to refine his art and perfect his craft, and is excited to pursue new career opportunities with Gray Talent Group.
