Jim quickly developed the content, edited the footage and prepared the segments for distribution online with
minimal input from the rest of the organization. Jim’s latest project is a win for our sales team as well as our

"Jim served as our marketing lead for many critical Capital One Healthcare Finance initiatives, including a mammoth
effort to rebrand the line of business from AmeriFee to Capital One in 2007 and as point person for marketing and

"We originally approached Jim to develop a script for a first responder’s training program. Jim stepped up and in.
Jim was able to quickly educate himself on the subject matter and his knowledge of scriptwriting and marketing were
of incredible value to us.
He took our thoughts and our goals for the video project and turned them into a dialogue within a wonderfully
orchestrated script. He consistently focused on our target audience and made sure we stayed on track.
Our final product was so much more than we expected. In fact, that first program has become part of a statewide
training curriculum for Massachusetts fire fighters and police officers."
