A few months back, I wrote about my newest post-ballet retirement journey into clowning. I shared the creation of my character Jim. Since then, it has been seen by many people, and it had the exact effect I intended. It began to showcase my work as an actor and not just a dancer.

I am excited to share my second film, Jim and the Bike. The creation of this project was different than the first one. I had a better sense of what to expect and my writing was more concise. We were able to pull everything together quickly, without losing quality and intention. So, without further adieu, I’ll let the work speak for itself.
