Although he’s remained close to his Connecticut roots, Jim brings a diverse background of professional experience to his accountant position at Centerbrook.

Fresh off of earning a bachelor’s degree in accounting and business information systems in 2009 at Eastern Connecticut State University, Jim launched his career at Seaside Naturals in North Branford. A native of nearby Northford, Jim followed that with more than three years of service at a financial investment firm in North Haven. He joined Centerbrook in 2016 following two-plus years at an area auto dealership.

Beyond his professional duties, Jim has stimulating leisure activities. After dabbling in piano and a few other musical instruments as a youngster, Jim settled on playing drums in his early teens. He hasn’t looked back since.

Taking his craft seriously, Jim continually expands his repertoire. Focusing primarily on rock – Dave Grohl is his main influence – Jim has been a member of 30-some bands through the years. In demand, he’s often been in multiple bands simultaneously.

Although he doesn’t (yet) take it as seriously as his music, Jim recently ventured into canvas painting. Jim and a group of close friends gather monthly to watch instructional videos describing painting techniques, then challenge each other to see who can replicate it best.
