    Actor Bio
    A native of the Logan/Olney section of Philadelphia(near LaSalle University), Jim has resided in Green Lane, PA since the '70's. Gifted with a great ear for music, he took piano lessons for seven years from age 6 to 13--yet plays by ear primarily. He was in his first rock band at age 15, played several lead roles in high schools plays and musicals(Nathan Detroit in "Guys & Dolls", Henry Drummond in "Inherit the Wind" and Jesus in Stephen Schwartz' "Godspell"). After two years as a Theatre & Speech major at what is now known as DeSales University, Jim was hired at WAEB radio in Allentown at age 20 to do news/weather reports in 1981. After 5 months there he did a one-year stint as disc jockey for rock station WZZO(Z-95), then headquartered in Bethlehem PA(met Joan Jett twice, Ozzy Osbourne, Kansas, Mike Reno of Loverboy, ZZTop, Johnny Van Zant Band). The band "Vagabond" then tapped him as their keyboardist for a year in 1983 and they played the Lehigh Valley and New Jersey extensively, opening once for the Hooters. From 1984 to 1987 Jim did 5 major productions for Richard Akins Productions as an actor--playing Jesus in "Jesus Christ Superstar", Magaldi in "EVITA" and more. In 1986 Jim began his foray into the piano/bar/restaurant world which he continues to this present day. And now some highlights:
