Jim is a Washington, D.C. native and is proud to be from an area that has spawned so many great
musicians. His mom was an award winning classical pianist as a teenager but her first love was jazz, so
as a small boy he was as much at home with Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday records as with any children's music. Of course, like so many of his generation, the rock and roll seismic shift known as the British Invasion meant goodbye to jazz - if only for a while - he just had to play rock and roll guitar.
The rest is history as they say. Jim has pursued the crafts of guitaring, singing and songwriting for many years now. He's been in countless bands, written music in several styles both for his own performance and for others, made and produced records, composed for plays, and mentored a number of professional musicians. In addition, he has been a full time independent professional guitar, ukulele and bass guitar teacher since 2004.
In addition to a full schedule of private students at his D.C. studio, he is also in his 9th year teaching guitar at prestigious Sheridan School in Northwest Washington.
Jim's working knowledge of a wide variety of genres, including but not limited to classical, all forms of rock, blues, jazz, country, folk, and singer-songwriter music make him a great fit for Film at Eleven as their sound is continuing to evolve.
Besides electric and acoustic guitar, Jim’s voice, ukulele, mandolin and harmonica all are likely to find their way onto the stage at any time.
He is living happily ever afterwith his wife and 2 cats near Takoma Park in D.C.
