So who the heck is this Jim guy anyway?

If that's the question you're asking yourself, you're in the right place.

I was born in Tacoma, Washington. After several moves with my family by virtue of my dad changing companies several times, I ended up in Dayton, Ohio, Columbus, Georgia and Albany, Oregon. Spent 13 years in Albany, where I worked at the local newspaper as a graphic designer for the advertising department for 6 years. After not really being happy with my situation, I decided I needed to get out. So I started with a weekend seminar at Brainco in February 2005. After I came back, I decided that I would go back to Minneapolis if the opportunity presented itself. After trying the Advertising Sales game for a while, they decided that I didn't have "it," whatever that means. So they let me go, and I fled to Minnesota.

So here I am! I attended the Brainco School of Advertising and Design, hoping to expand my design skills and break into the advertising industry. I found a great job with a medical device company and spent many years honing my skills there. So take a look at my work, try not to drool on it (I do like to keep things clean) and let me know what you think.
