Jim has been the Head of Digital at The Refinery since 2014. Prior to that, he was VP, Interactive at bpg. Jim’s creative marketing efforts over the years have supported studio and network releases across television (Showtime, Syfy, National Geographic Channel), theatrical (20th Century Fox, Disney, Sony Pictures), digital distribution (Amazon Studios, Hulu), and home entertainment (20th Century Fox, Lionsgate).

Originally from the NYC area, Jim now happily calls Los Angeles home. He has a BFA in Design from The University of Texas at Austin and an MBA from the University of Southern California. Jim is an expert skier, and he plays in a competitive ice hockey league. Miraculously, he still has all of his own teeth!
