Principal

Jim has been in the industry for 30 years.  He claims he’s never worked a day in his life since it’s not work if you love what you do. He also brings this passion for the work into the classroom.  Jim’s been teaching professional practice management at the Boston Architectural College for the past five years.  He’s notorious for asking his former students what his four favorite things are – sell it, do it, bill it, collect it!

Jim enjoys spending his free time with his family, wife Traci and sons Chris and Ben.  He especially enjoys assisting Traci tend to her garden, ten chickens and their border collie, Tucker.

If you could live anywhere on this planet where would you live?
Italy. And I would eat pasta and drink Chianti every day. 

If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive who would it be with?
My wife Traci and we would eat pasta at our favorite restuarant, L'Osteria in the North End where we had our first date. 

Pancakes or Waffles?
Pasta

What is your favorite word in the English language?
Yes. Yes is full of possibilities. Yes means taking risk. Yes is unconditional. Yes, I'll have more pasta.
