Currently: OC Trivia LIVE! ~ Host & Producer
Playful, funny, and a big geek. That’s what you get when Jimmy hosts a show. Great with people–and without–Jimmy adds his own goofy bits to whatever project he’s on.
Background: Born on John Lennon’s birthday to his parents John & Yoko (seriously!), Jimmy escaped Detroit to study Radio/TV/Film Writing & Production at Cal State Long Beach. From there, he established himself as a high-energy, over-the-top DJ & host throughout So Cal, performing at events for Two & A Half Men, Mike & Molly, I Hate My Teenage Daughter, and more.
Working with kids became a calling as he worked with Kidz Sports Zone, the “ESPN for kids” on the web. Adding audience warm up to his stable of talents was second nature, using interactive games, music, and of course humor! With a wide array of talents, Jimmy can host ANYTHING and adds his sometimes sarcastic but always affable and professional personality to every project.
Oh, there’s more, but this descriptive monolith might become larger than Jimmy’s persona. And Jimmy can’t have that.
AUDIENCE WARM UP/WARM UP DJ
It’s all about the SHOW! And Jimmy understands that. He loves that he gets to entertain audiences using interactive games and challenges, music and dance, and the funny stuff, all while being part of the background fabric of a show. The show is the “Star” and Jimmy makes sure the audience knows that and focuses on all the things that make a live audience WORK for the SHOW.
As a DJ for the audience warm up guy, Jimmy really does what he can to help make the warm up guy shine. He works hand in hand with the MC, following his lead, always alert to changes and shifts in the act, reading the crowd, and using sound effects and high energy music to aide in keeping the level of excitement peaked but not overbearing.
Jimmy has worked as warm up on various shows, tapings, and projects throughout Hollywood and Orange County as a warm up and as a warm up DJ. The best of both worlds!
It all started with the History Channel TV show called Foot Soldier: Egyptians. Jimmy played the main comedic foot soldier, sleeping on the job, goofing off with his soldier buddy, and delicately dipping bread in beer.
From there, Jimmy appeared in a couple of movies such as Volcano and Liar, Liar, but his true excitement for acting always went back to that TV show.
He most recently appeared on Community as a teacher and is constantly booking gigs in commercial acting and industrial projects. His last corporate project for Microsoft as a Skills For Life teacher was a huge success for that educational program. He certainly isn’t afraid to over-act whenever needed.
Voice-overs are a natural for Jimmy as he’s been on the mic for over 25 years. He’s been doing commercial voice-over and lending his vocal talents to radio stations like KBRT-AM and KIIS-FM.
He most recently co-hosted a radio show about eating right, losing weight, and getting in shape on Mind, Body, and Soul Radio.
Whether he’s dropping in some crazy random accent or he’s simply having a conversation on air with you, his versatile voice is always more interesting than “Bueller? Bueller?” Right?
