about jim... 

 

a professional actor since 2002, jim garrity got into the industry through bites, bytes and bits. here is the "reader's digest" version.

the bites. working up the ladder in the food and beverage industry for eleven years, jim served as the regional f&b director for a national country clubcorporation. while there is a lot to be said for tasting food and testing manager mettle, like other industries, the business had changed. seeing the change, a friend suggested, "why don't you quit and find out what you want to do?" talk about a leap of faith!

the bytes. looking for a break from the norm, jim ventured into the world of bill gates and steve jobs. in the midst of his masters in computer information systems, he had a revelation of mega-byte proportions. follow your passion. jim started taking acting courses. one thing led to another...and the next thing you know...

jim has now appeared in over 200 productions spanning commercials, industrials, films, print, theater, and other live and taped mediums. but that still leaves us having to explain...

the bits. an accomplished handyman, jim is dallas' own version of ty pennington in abc's "extreme makeover: home edition." while he carries and uses drill bits and other tools with great ease, he provides the same passion and skill... just without all of the cameras! check out his latest projects by clicking www.jimgarrity.info/jimhandy.htm .
