His interest in computers and art drove him to study and learn 3ds Max on his own prior to starting Trinity. During the 90’s, Jim created all manner of architectural, technical and forensic animation, worked on VFX scenes for the 1997 Sony/Tristar film “Starship Troopers,” and even helped with modeling a puppet head for the “Barney the Dinosaur” children’s show. Jim’s primary work at Trinity includes operations, new technologies, HR, IT, purchasing, marketing and sales. His career highlights include writing the best selling book series “Maya Fundamentals”, and earning the UMKC Engineering Alumnus of the Year in 2004.
