Jim earned a B.A. in theatre from Western Illinois University and his M.F.A. in acting from the FSU / Asolo Conservatory in Sarasota, Florida. He lived in New York City for two years and Los Angeles for four years teaching, directing, acting and pursuing the illusive actor's career. Jim arrived in Macon in 1982 to become director at the Macon Little Theatre during their fiftieth season celebration. In 1986, with a lot of help and support from friends and the community of Macon, he founded Theatre Macon, now in its thirty second season. He is proud of Theatre Macon's accomplishments which have brought state and regional recognition to the theatre. In addition, many of the Youth Actors' Company graduates are working and studying professionally. His life's work has largely been dedicated to recognizing and developing talent, both young and old.
