ABOUT JIM

Jim Studied drama as one of his GCSE options at Allerton high school in Leeds because he thought it would be the easy option. It was there that he picked up the performing bug and went on to take  a GNVQ in drama and performance at Airdale and Wharfedale college leaving with a merit in 1999 he opted to take  job over going to uni and spent the next 10 years working as a pub chef and bar manager.
