Though he was born in Akron, Ohio, Jim Valeri considers himself a California native. With a degree in illustration from Cal State Northridge, Jim worked in the aerospace industry for some time before becoming an intern at Disney Consumer products in 1994. Sixteen years later, Jim is still with the company creating Vinylmation like Cranky Bot from the Robots Series. Jim also created one of the exclusive Limited edition 9″ Robots, Salvage Bot.

Art is a compulsion for Jim, so working in the creative environment of the Disney Store and making characters come to life everyday is only natural.
