A lifelong athlete and college football player, Jim has been pursuing a career in the NFL as a punter since 2004. Always in a constant pursuit of greater flexibility to further his career, Jim found Nic and Dynamic Contraction Technique through a mutual friend, and after one session, he was hooked!
“I’ve done everything I could to improve my flexibility. I’ve tried Yoga, Pilates, elastic bands, holding static stretches so long it hurts, even yanking my legs open with ropes. And four years using all of these methods hasn’t produced the gains experienced over three months using Dynamic Contraction Technique.”
A graduate of Wesleyan University in Connecticut where he studied theatrical arts and architecture, Jim has long combined the idea of intention with action and thought with movement. His ability to apply knowledge and understanding from one art to another is his greatest strength. Whether he is coaching a new placekicker or acting on stage, he is always looking to use the teachings of one as lessons for the other.
Jim currently volunteers his time coaching punters, kickers and long-snappers at the University of San Diego. Using his five years of collegiate coaching experience, he aims to produce another All-Conference kicker this year, something he has never failed to do since he began coaching. Even in the off-season, you’ll see him at the school putting in long hours on the field to develop his own punting skills.
Jim’s family still resides in Connecticut. He has four sisters, all of whom are stellar basketball players, two having received full scholarships to Quinnipiac University. If not on the football field, you’ll find Jim serving at church, writing scripts, practicing yoga or training with some of San Diego’s other superb fitness professionals.
