Founder & Owner
In 1983 Jim was one of the original founders of AID based out of the Record Plant Studios and now manages the company from the 1155 N. La Brea company office.
Jim is also the founder and owner of plus24, a media equipment distribution company representing Sanken Microphones, Brainstorm Electronics, LMC Sound, DAD, Marion Digital Audio Electronics, and Sommer Cable.
The “behind the scenes” aspects of theater and motion picture production grabbed my attention as a teenager leading to college at UCLA and a go at the entertainment business. My career began in pro audio and lighting for live events and eventually migrated into lighting and camera work for feature films.
After starting a family with my wife Jennifer, I began my odyssey into the postproduction world. I started at Sony Pictures and later moved to NT Audio serving as Chief Engineer responsible for Screening Rooms, a Film Lab, Re-recording Stages, and Digital Intermediate Services.
As motion picture film succeeded to digital, I transitioned into broadcasting and Information technology serving as an engineer for CBS Television. In 2015 I joined the happy family at AID handling System Design and Project Management.
I started at Audio Intervisual Design June 1, 1992 so officially my longest working relationship—great people and interesting projects keep me here.
I came to the audio field in 1969, mixing sound for Chicago’s Kinetic Playground. Later, partnered in a company building sound systems, followed by heading west to California with a band. I moved into sales, representing a line of mixing consoles, and on to pro audio sales.
In my leisure time, I enjoy live music with my wife Sandra, and riding motorcycles to stay young at heart.

Technical Services Group
As a kid I started learning basic electronics and programing from my dad who worked on the Apollo project. In the early 80s I had a blast making my living mixing live audio.
Since moving to L.A. I’ve built, tuned, and maintained studio facilities for both music and post production. Along the way I’ve also worked on Emmy winning TV shows.
If LA had snow days I’d spend them building tube amps.
For the last twenty years I have been actively involved in digital media production and its supporting infrastructure.
From years of research and development at Sonic Solutions to building a state of the art video transcoding and streaming media facility to designing some of the largest post-production SAN infrastructures and broadcast KVM deployments in use today, I pioneered a path of least resistance through the ever evolving forest of technological change.
When not involved in AID projects, I am the co-chairperson of the new music non-profit SASSAS.ORG and a composer and performer active in the Los Angeles music scene. I have been with AID since 2001.
