Jimmy – Downtown

Hi, my name is Jimmy and first off I am so excited to be part of the RuffCity team.

I grew up in Minnesota with the luck of having a father who worked in dog training and a family full of animal lovers. My father mostly worked with German Shepherds and larger breeds so we naturally had many of them around the house. At some point, my brother and his family began breeding miniature schnauzers so I got the pleasure of spending my time with many different animals at all the stages of life.

I moved to NYC in 2008 and immediately began meeting people with animals that I fell in love with and would care for whenever possible. When I’m not enjoying my time with the pets of NYC I spend my time as an artist and performer.
