Jim came up in the industry, learning about audio, lighting, shooting and interviewing in the field. As a freelancer for ESPN for 10+ years, he once helped Kenny Mayne shoot the classic “Naked Brett Favre” segment in Green Bay. His sense of humor and enthusiasm are infectious, especially on a shoot. (Or anywhere there’s ice cream cake.) To really win over Jim, just talk baseball or sing some ’70s soft rock harmony with him.
