Jim started directing while working at MTV both in the US and the UK. After that, Jim started directing daringly funny and imaginative commercials, films and TV series. The New York Times called Jim's first feature film The Greasy Strangler, “just maybe the weirdest movie ever.” It was shot in LA, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and won Best Comedy at the 2017 Empire Magazine Film Awards, as well as The Discovery Award at The British Independent Film Awards. Jim also made the show Tropical Cop Tales for Adult Swim, a surreal, genre-bending, gross-out take on the over-worn cop procedural and possibly the most bizarre show on the home of out there TV. Jim lives in London, but is able to pack a bag, just the one bag, and is able to travel on foot, on a bicycle, in a car, on a train, on a plane, and also on a donkey.
