Jimmy started mixing in early 1992. Starting off by doing guest spots at the Beacham Theater for Kimball Collins and Dave Cannalte. After The Beacham closed, he took a one and a half year residency with Kimball at Barbarella's "LIFT" night. The Beacham reopened for the Reunion Parties, he began doing guest spots there with dj's like Sasha, John Digweed, and Dave Seaman. In mid 1994, The Beacham Theater had closed for good. Jimmy then started taking guest spots up and down the East Coast. .

After doing 2 years of road gigs, Jimmy wanted to branch out more in the music industry. He started Eros Euphony - a company designed to handle numerous events like dj/band tour promotions and his personal studio ventures. Jimmy hooked up with now studio partner Sean Cusick to start writing music. Under the names Eros Euphony, Freelance Icebreakers and The Escape Artists, they quickly put together two EP's of tracks that got the attention of some of the best DJ's around including Dave Seaman from Stress Recordings. Stress snapped the duo to a one year contract.

During that same year, Jimmy expanded the other part of Eros Euphony by setting up Northern Exposure, the first North American DJ tour for Sasha and John Digweed, with local promoter Bevin O'Neill. This highly successful tour has been instrumental in putting progressive dance music on the minds and ears of many people across America. One such club that this tour connected with was the legendary Twilo in New York. Setting up this gig took big risks on the part of Jimmy, Twilo and Sasha and Digweed. This risk has now paid off to a monthly residency for all three DJ's that has become one of Twilo's most talked about nights.

Jimmy continued to build on the success of the Northern Exposure Tour by expanding his DJing across America, Canada and a guest spot at PACHA in Ibiza for Renaissance. The end of 1996 saw Eros Euphony expanding once again. Together with Chris Fortier (Fade Records), they started the first import promotional company in the United States. This part of Eros Euphony was set up to widely promote UK and European Dance music. Labels like Polydor, Jackpot, Sony, Whoop, Limbo, Platipus, Sperm, Positiva, Sim, Loaded, and many more have all given their full support.

For 1997, all aspects of Eros Euphony took off through the roof, which led to the creation of Balance Promote Group, the promotion end of Eros Euphony. With the success of Northern Exposure, Cream (Liverpool) contacted Jimmy to put together a Cream USA tour. This tour spanned across America and Canada again using such DJ talent as Carl Cox, Dave Seaman, Doc Martin and Nick Warren. This tour has solidified Jimmy and Balance as the Promotions Company in the USA. Balance now hold exclusive booking rights to many of the UK's top DJ's including Sasha, John Digweed, Nick Warren, Dave Seaman, Parks & Wilson, Quivver, to name a few.

Jimmy's DJing continued to rise in 1997. He travelled with partner Chris Fortier to the UK to do a mini tour of the country set up by close friend John Digweed playing clubs like Sugar Shack and Cream. Jimmy can be found DJing all over North America and parts of Central and South America.
