Jim Patterson joined the staff of the Steamboat Pilot & Today as assistant editor in February. A graduate of Arkansas State University, Jim brings more than 15 years experience in the field of print journalism, having worked as an award-winning reporter, columnist and editor at several newspapers across his home state of Arkansas. Jim fell in love with the Rocky Mountains during a vacation here in the early 1990s and has been looking for an excuse to return ever since; he is delighted to now be able to call Steamboat Springs his home. In his spare time, Jim enjoys hiking, weightlifting, martial arts, reading, writing, filmmaking and catering to the capricious whims of his two cats, Linus and LJ. He is also looking forward to cementing his position as a Steamboat resident by learning to ski.
