Born and raised in a world surrounded by violence, drugs, foster homes and crime - Jimmy pulled himself out of a reality the majority of us wouldn't survive. He realized he had a passion for film in his early 20's, and committed his career and life to becoming a professional actor. Now at 40 years old, it's finally becoming a reality for him. We discuss his childhood and how he navigated his way through it, how he discovered his passion, how difficult it was to stay on his path in his 30's, and the success and momentum he's now finally beginning to see.
