A veteran police officer and current part-time Deputy Sheriff with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office in Stafford, Virginia. As a former narcotics detective, Jim worked and trained in many areas of law enforcement, including SWAT tactics, hostage negotiations, undercover operations, narcotics interdiction, interviews/interrogations, crime scene processing, and evidence collection. He was also an instructor in the areas of narcotics investigation, community policing, officer survival, defensive tactics/Krav Maga. Jim now teaches an introduction to acting for undercover and plain clothes officers. He believes that great filmmaking begins with a passion for great storytelling: It begins with the writing and developing of strong scripts, while simultaneously creating interesting and original characters. Bringing this all to life on screen while being surrounded by a great team of people who also believe in this vision-is what Jim loves most about filmmaking. “Every time we make a film, we are chasing dreams. How blessed are we who get to do it.”
“Your dream was given to you. If someone else can’t see it for you, that’s fine, it was given to you and not them. It’s your dream. Hold it. Nourish it. Cultivate it!”
