Bio:

Jim graduated from Middlebury College in Vermont with an English Department degree in American Literature in 1976. Though not recruited for the ski team, he soon made the traveling team and competed in the Division 1 NCAA Championships three out of four years. One highlight for him was third place in the Eastern Collegiate Championships in Downhill as a freshman. He was also Alpine Ski Team Captain senior year. “Many of my ski racing teammates and competitors have become my lifelong friends.” Some of these ski racing contacts led to sales and marketing work with K2 Skis through 1981.

Adventures with the ski team and then K2 inspired Jim to head West to Colorado. Skiing and kayaking were the draws, but the life style hooked him. After working in Sales for an Aspen based telemark ski company called Phoenix Skis, Jim made the move to real estate in 1988. It was a perfect fit. With a wealth of sales experience and a love of Colorado living, selling real estate in the Roaring Fork Valley was a natural progression for Jim. He has been with Mason Morse since 1994 and over the past five years has consistently been one of the top two or three producers in the Carbondale office. In addition, Jim has spent many years on the Board of the Aspen Valley Land Trust and was President of the Board in 2005. “Volunteering for a non-profit organization that is dedicated to preserving open space was something I jumped at the chance to participate in. I am extremely proud to be part of a group that has preserved thousands of acres here in our backyard.” Jim spends his free time skiing, kayaking, climbing and generally enjoying life in the mountains with his wife and three children. "I enjoy helping people find just the right property and I love where I live. That’s what makes a career in real estate work so well for me."
