Though technically a production accountant, Jimmy Tsai has been creating projects since his early teens, when the order of the day included everything from crime movie spoofs to commercials for the high school swim team. Jimmy's latest filmmaking efforts include acting in and co-writing the independent feature film PING PONG PLAYA with director Jessica Yu; writing/directing another chapter in the THE VENOM SPORTSWEAR AD CAMPAIGN, a multi-media commentary on the state of children's sports endorsement deals; as well as producing THE KILLING OF A CHINESE COOKIE, a documentary about the history of the fortune cookie. With writer John Choi, Jimmy has been selected as a member of the Fox Television Writer's Program as well as a quarter-finalist for the prestigious Nicholl Fellowship. In addition to his many creative endeavors, Jimmy has also served as Director of Finance and Development for Cherry Sky Films, Business Development Liaison for SOFA Studio and Production Accountant on several features including Justin Lin's FINISHING THE GAME and Quentin Lee's ETHAN MAO.
In addition to his many creative activities, Jimmy also serves as Director of Development and Finance for production company Cherry Sky Films. In the time he has left afterwards, Jimmy draws, reads comic books, plays basketball, and ruminates on the benefits and detriments of walking the earth for a living as an alternative to working a routine and mundane 9-to-5 job.
