Personal Interests

Although he is the worst golfer in the firm, Jim enjoys playing golf and recently has taken up tennis, a sport at which he is similarly inept. He claims to run but is almost always seen walking when supposedly running. He prefers to be referred to as “Jim Shaw,” as opposed to “Jim Shah,” both orally and in writing and always appreciates it when others mispronounce and misspell his name. If you are looking for a long answer, ask him about his children, individuals with whom he actually does enjoy spending time.
