Jim was born and raised in Princeton, NJ and now resides in Carmel, NY with his wife, Chiara, their ten-year old son, Phineas, their two dogs, Maeve and Sawyer and one kitten named Nico.
A passion for real estate has led him down the path to becoming a real estate salesperson. Jim feels that his visual background and strong sense of aesthetics allows him the ability to find the perfect balance between a client’s needs, desires and budget to find a home that will make them happy for years to come.
Prior to embarking on this new career, he spent fourteen years as an actor, having worked on Broadway in The Man Who Came to Dinner and in television on the series St. Elsewhere.
He is the creative director of Petography®, specializing in fine art photography of animals (www.petography.com). He is the author of thirteen books. He has been profiled on ABC’s 20/20 and on The View with Barbara Walters. His work has been featured in Oprah’s O Magazine, Town & Country and InStyle. His clientele includes Jennifer Aniston, Henry Kissinger, Charlize Theron, Billy Joel and Elton John.
Jim now sees himself as a matchmaker; pairing homes with his clients’ criteria. His intention is not to be a salesman but rather a conduit dedicated to fulfilling his clients’ needs.
