As founder and CEO of Hutch Media, Jimmy scaled revenue to tens of millions of dollars for its own content properties, including RumorFix, which aggregated a network of sites boasting over 100MM pageviews per month.

He is currently on the board of Saving Innocence and the event committee of First Star, both nonprofits to whom a percentage of NMP proceeds are directed. Jimmy began his career as an advertising executive at RWB, working with clients such as Intel, VW, Herbalife and Dow and helping procure engagements with Toyota and Lexus.
