Get In Touch With Me

What Clients And Colleagues Have Said

There is a man named Jim Robinson.  He is one of my favorite human beings.  He is tall, handsome, intelligent, hilarious and—more often than not—openly bewildered by life.

Joseph Scrimshaw Comedian, Writer

When we broke into our smaller groups my team worked with Jim, and I wanted to make sure I shared what an EXCELLENT teacher he is.  A lot of the people in our group were very much outside of their comfort zones but he created a very safe and fun space for everyone to explore their creativity and let go of their inhibitions a bit.  He was also sincerely supportive of each and every person and he really helped to make it a great day.

Workshop Participant Cargill Training

Jim Robinson, always in his element in sketch work, has comic timing hard-wired inside him.

Hands down, one of my favorite professors at St. Kate's!  He makes the class very interesting and entertaining, and explains the material really well through the use of examples and stories.  I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
