He started off as an actor in Bakersfield, California before moving east to attend Stella Adler Conservatory in New York City. For a period of time he toured internationally with American Shakespeare Center, and he met his wife Christine in Ottawa, Canada.

Together they spent a few years in Washington, D.C. before moving to Los Angeles to be closer to family and friends. Jim is currently a member of UNITE HERE, Local 11.
