Jim Wilkins was born in Oakland, California and graduated from high school in Carson City,
Nevada. After eight years of college, with three different majors at three different
universities, resulting in no degrees, he moved to Astoria and started a construction
company called Wilkins Construction, specializing in infrastructure improvement projects
for both public and private owners. After thirty three years in that business he sold the
company and began a consulting business called Wilkins Consulting, which he currently
operates. His interests are eclectic and wide ranging and are reflected in the interview
technique he brings to Fridays with Jim on KMUN Community Radio.
