Jimmy joined the Enterprise in 1990, and he especially enjoys writing human-interest features and columns. A lifelong North Carolinian, he also enjoys writing for Our State magazine. As an avid "Andy Griffith Show" fan, his two favorite interviews were the ones he did with Griffith and Don Knotts, but he believes the stories he writes about ordinary citizens can be just as compelling, if not more so, than stories about celebrities. His writing has won numerous state, regional and national writing awards.
Jimmy and his wife, Becky, live in Greensboro with their two daughters, Ashley and Caroline, and a greyhound named Spice.
