What their colleagues say

“A man of his words and pretty awesome with them too, Jim is brilliant at working with creative directors, strategists and account handlers alike. He is great at listening to everyone and then picking that odd insight, which he then crafts into a crazy idea that just sticks. Working with Jim is a blast, he simply ‘gets it’ and has been part of some of the best work coming out of our agency.”
