Jim has had a passion for music from a very early age. From the first time that he was introduced to bands such as KISS, Van Halen, the Beatles and REO Speedwagon by his older brother and Elvis Presley, Three Dog Night, George Strait and the Bee Gees and Abba from his parents, Jim was enamored! Music was in his blood! Throughout grade school and high school music had become his driving force and the soundtrack to his life. Jim began working at a music store selling records (yes, vinyl!), cassettes and CDs as well as VHS, DVDs and video games. It was around this time that Jim started DJing. Jim managed to double major at the University of Illinois earning a Bachelor’s degree in Photography and another Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design. His passion for art and music has always remained with him as well as his desire to share the experience with others.
