Jim has been a designer and project manager at Kersting Architecture since 2014, a relationship that began years before as a summer internship. Prior to moving back to his Native home of Wilmington, Jim lived in Chicago with his now wife Jenifer. There he worked at a Design Build firm in the Gold Coast, while Jenifer finished her Medical School rotations. During his three-year stint in graduate school, Jim studied in Clemson, Charleston, and Genoa Italy, with a focus in design/build. Jim’s passion for the built world stems from his earlier years as a general contractor, and son of an accomplished homebuilder. He likes long walks on the beach and a good Pinot Noir with Jenifer and their French bulldog, Bella Luna.
