Originally from Missouri, Jim started by listening and keeping time to music created by Beethoven, Glen Miller and eventually Steve Miller. He joined his first band in the 8th grade and was on his way from there!​

In college, he continued to hone his drumming and percussion skills by simply duplicating the sounds that were on records at the time. He joined a group in college and began a career as a rock/R&B drummer.

In the late 80's while living in South Texas, he was hired by the Kurland Street Band where he played Big Band & Jazz music.

The 90's brought Jim to country music where he has excelled ever since.

The year 2000 rang in life in Austin, Texas, playing country music in some of the most historic venues and surrounded by Hall of Fame musicians.

Some of Jim's influences have been Gene Kruppa, Buddy Rich, The Everly Brothers, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Webb Pierce, Patsy Cline, Bimg Crosby, Buddy Holly, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Bob Wills to name a few.

Jim joined the Glen Collins Band in 2003 and has been "The Rock" for the dancing tempos of the group.

A solid, professional player with skills that exceed expectations of drummers in the Austin area.

Jim is an Associate Member of the Texas Music Hall of Fame - Gatesville.
