All you have to do is look at his photo and you can tell by the photo that this guy grew up here. He really did grow up at Alaska Rivers Company
crawling in and out of coolers and driving the guides crazy. Unfortunately for the guides, now he’s a boatman that is over 6 feet tall and they can’t duct tape him to a wall and pick on him as much. Jimmy also grew up here in Cooper Landing, attending our little school, but now spends winters in the ski resort town of Girdwood going to school and becoming an official ski bum. During the school year, he cross country skis and runs track for Girdwood, and eats a lot to support his growth. He also is a mean piano player—and unlike Mike—he really can play.
