In 2000, Jim co-founded Peak Creative, a Denver, Colorado creative and public affairs agency, that he helped grow from a single client into one of Colorado's busiest agencies. He sold the firm in 2011.
Prior to Peak, Jim worked on a variety of successful federal, state and local campaigns for Republican candidates and committees including serving as communications director for Lamar Alexander's early campaign for the 1996 GOP nomination. Jim got his start in political consulting working for media legend Roger Ailes in New York, Washington and Los Angeles.
He wrote and produced more than half of the radio spots broadcast by Bush-Quayle '92 including a commercial awarded the Pollie for "Best Presidential Radio Spot" of the cycle by the American Association of Political Consultants.
He's won numerous other creative awards including several Pollies and Gold Quills and was named a "Rising Star" by Campaigns & Elections magazine.
He's developed messaging and public advocacy campaigns for clients including T-Mobile, Great-West, Qwest (now CenturyLink), First Data, Western Union, Dex Media, Pinnacol, One Colorado, Gill Foundation, Denver Botanic Gardens, Coloradans for Fairness, Coloradans for Sensible Solutions, Foundations for Colorado's Future and many others.
With High Frontier Productions, he led the development of several celebrated satirical web sites including WeLoveTheIraqiInformationMinister.com which have earned millions of web visits and sold thousands of fantastically silly t-shirts.
