Jim wasn't like other highschoolers...
Like many young men cursed with a dash of creativity, Jim found a love for writing, which everybody else in his life thought was practically useless. Those folks; teachers, family, neighbors, all urged him to get good at math and science instead, and so he worked at those, but he was never sure if he could hack them out at a university level.
After he graduated university with an arts degree (where he had to read an awful lot), he wondered what other young people had gone through the same thing. It's always been his dream to inspire young men and women to pursue STEM projects, as he thinks the world could use as many helping hands it can get and he thinks they are up to the challenge.
In other news, he grew up near Toronto, Canada and devoured any written adventure he could find, including many of the works written by Kenneth Oppel, D. J. MacHale, Christopher Paolini, and Rick Riordan. Later on, it was Jim Butcher, R.A. Salvator, Hajime Isayama, and Tsugumi Ohba who fueled him through his early adult years and to whom he associates much of his personal growth to.
Now, Jim works everyday on his dream while also making the world of Cecas come to life.
