Jim Goodwin was born in 1954 in western North Carolina, where his father was pastor at Clyde First Baptist Church. When Jim was two, his parents went to South Korea as Southern Baptist missionaries, and Jim is appreciative that they took him with them. Returning to the US after high school, Jim attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s in Radio, Television, and Motion Pictures. Moving to Houston, Texas, he got a job at a local television station doing audio for commercials, live shows, promos, documentaries, and whatever else needed to be done. He also freelanced in the sports field, working for ESPN in its early days and for other national and local networks. In 1988 he moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, where he freelanced doing a variety of sound work for numerous clients, both locally and nationally. Currently his primary client is Figure 8 Films, for whom he has worked on ’19 Kids & Counting’ for a number of years.
