American, educated at the University of Southern California, Jimmy has a BA in History and an MA in Instruction and Curriculum. He could have spent his life moulding young minds but, to his father’s great disappointment, he has spent most of the last 44 winters as a ski bum, skiing in 72 countries, on all seven continents. He has at least partly financed his ski addiction by writing and photographing his adventures and his work has been published in close to 600 articles in 20 countries. In 2005, Jimmy produced a 440-page, coffee-table book called ”Skiing Around the World“. Since that time, he has been working on volume II. For more information, see www.skiingaroundtheworldbook.com.
