About Jim

I have lived in Indiana all my life.  I was born in Brazil, and graduated from Van Buren High School.  I attended Indiana State University where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science.  I worked for Sony Corporation of America, and their subsidiary, Digital Audio Disc Corporation.  

I eventually hired on at Electronic Data Systems.  I graduated from their Systems Engineer Development program, and supported GM's local divisions of Allison Transmission and Allison Gas Turbine (today Rolls Royce).  I also traveled North America teaching EDS corporate methodology courses.

Speaking of teaching, I have taught various courses at Ivy Tech since 1992.

I decided to return to school and earned a Juris Doctor from the Valparaiso University School of Law.  I have been a practicing attorney ever since, and currently work in Danville at Hinkle Law.

 I'm also a registered mediator, have also earned several NIMS certifications.

I'm a member of the Speedway Masonic Lodge and served as the Master of the Lodge in 2017.  I'm a member of the Indianapolis Scottish Rite,  and have three years experience on the board of directors for the Masonic Scholarship Board and Indiana Masonic Home.

I have lived in Hendricks County the past 19 years with my wife, Cindy, several parrots and a dog.
