Jim describes his philosophy as that of an open minded skeptic. Before his radio and writing career, Jim flew airplanes for a living for thirty years. He said he has never seen anything in the sky that he could not explain. Jim is not convinced intellectually or spiritually that the universe contains creative life forms beyond our own species.
Although Jim has written about UFO's, Big Foot, physical phenomena and paranormal activities, he remains a skeptic. But he said he has gotten favorable audience feedback on the topic of alien abductions and will continue having interviews into this very unusual subject.
