Jimmy was born and raised in Denver, CO. He began piano lessons at age seven after his parents heard him picking out tunes on the family piano. Jimmy began singing in high school after being urged to audition for the fall musical; he began singing in choir the next year and has remained in love with the choral experience ever since.
Jimmy received his B.A. in Music from Concordia University in 2007 where he studied piano with Ms. Patricia Riffel and conducting with Dr. Michael Busch. He received his Master's Degree in Choral Conducting and Literature from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2016, where he studied with Dr. Gregory Gentry and Dr. Andrea Ramsey.
His experiences conducting and singing with school and community ensembles have provided him with unforgettable opportunities to share the enormously transformative power of singing in community. Jimmy's excitement for choral music is unyielding and he believes the future holds unlimited potential for singing communities and their ability to enhance the human experience.
