Jim Salame morphed with the Om of Medicine as the General Manager in 2012. Before joining, he was a musical performer at Om’s Comedy shows, as well as a volunteer, performer and organizer for Om’s political fundraisers.
Further back in time, Jim worked in several vastly different industries developing his customer service and managerial expertise. He worked in Hollywood for major studios like Paramount Pictures and Fox Studios, along with countless restaurants. Soon after, Jim found himself in the mountains of Aspen, working for the Aspen Ski Company where snowboarding and cannabis had him singing Rocky Mountain high. Corporate start-ups and more television gigs followed his stay in Colorado along with a brief stint working for the Department of Justice.
A family member’s illness brought Jim back to Michigan and into the medical aspects of cannabis for cancer treatment. Back in Ann Arbor, he worked for a few years at Apple Inc after the release of the first iPhone. It was the longest he had worked for one company until starting his greatest job of all in helping build the Om of Medicine. Today, in his free time, Jim enjoys music and traveling to Peru for the plant medicines and diverse ecosystems of the Amazon.
