A dancer and musician for dance classes at Velocity Dance Center, Jim has performed for several Seattle-based choreographers and performance endeavors, including Mary Sheldon-Scott, Wade Madsen, Mark Haim, zoe | juniper, Dayna Hanson and Saint Genet. He holds a BFA in Dance from Cornish College of the Arts. Most recently, Jim appeared in Dayna Hanson’s feature-film Improvement Club (2013) and choreographed for the feature-film Laggies (2014) shot in Seattle and directed by Lynn Shelton. This year he participated in the Ambassador Project for On the Boards, which is a pilot program designed to support the artists presenting work for the 2013-14 season. He also served on the selection panel for the Northwest New Works Festival happening June 2014.

It is rewarding beyond belief to be present and instrumental, from conception to performance, of any new work, because it gives all of those involved in that process some say or voice or agency.
