Jim grew up in a small lake town in the mountains of southern California, where wakeboarding taught him to be tough in the water. Jimmy learned to dive after he met Sarah in 2012, and after a close encounter with a giant black sea bass on a day trip to Catalina, he was hooked. Sarah and Jim became lifelong dive buddies in 2014. Jimmy enjoys the peacefulness of diving and learning new things about critters from Sarah. Jim is completing his MBA at UC Davis, after which he hopes to pursue a career in institutional money management.
