First born son of the womb of Nut, begotten of Geb, the lord of Akert, whose existence is forever lasting! But he got over that. Jim started gaming in the early 80’s with first edition D&D and moved on to Shadowrun and the White Wolf titles during the 90’s. His love of gaming grew to indie RPG’s, miniatures, boardgames and collectibles.
Jim worked for AEG with their Clan War product and became a staff miniatures painter there during the early 2000’s. There, Jim worked with the likes of John Wick, Jim Pinto, Ree Soesbee and Eric Yaple. During this time, Jim started to volunteer with the Strategicon conventions in what was then known as the “Special Projects Team” which focused on bringing events whose scale or design could only be played at a convention venue. Since, Jim has been made department head for RPG’s and later a member of the board of directors. During his time with the convention staff Jim spearheaded the introduction of Party Games, Games on Demand and the involvement of the Sabre Legion lightsaber dueling organization.
