Welcome, Jim!

Hi… I’m Jim. I come from Boston but I’ve lived all over the country including San Francisco, Seattle, Minneapolis, Nashville and Des Moines.

I’ve been in the music business for a while now starting at one stops and record stores. My first music job in New York was as a receptionist at Island Records. Since then, I have worked at various record labels both major and indie including Arista, ZE, Imago and 2/13/61.

I’ve worked with artists ranging from Aimee Mann to Yellowman and every man in between, including a lot that are here at The Orchard. For the past few years, I’ve been licensing and pitching publishing and master catalogs most recently with the iconic Reggae label VP Records and previously the Arc Music Group, the music publishing home of Chess, VJ and Brunswick Records.

I live on the Upper East Side with my girlfriend Anita and our two cats. When I’m not working I like to spend my free time listening to music, watching TV and movies and following the Red Sox.

I’m really looking forward to working with the diverse catalogs at The Orchard. This is going to be fun.
