Board Members

Jim Cushinery [CEO] is an accomplished filmmaker, musician and entertainment industry veteran with over 30 years of experience of telling tall tales. A singer/songwriter by since age 15, Cush (to his friends) has performed on record with Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, Scott Weiland, Daniel Lanois and others. He’s toured the nation as a member of the band Fisher, sharing stages with the likes of Sarah McLachlan, Bon Jovi, David Grey, and Sinead O’Connor.

Cush’s film and television career left the barn with an appearance in the 1980’s screwball comedy, “My Chauffeur.” He has lent his musical talents to a range of titles, including “Melrose Place,” “Dawson’s Creek,” “7th Heaven,” “Great Expectations,” “Cradle 2 The Grave,” and most infamously as the singer behind “The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers” theme songs. Along the way, he has performed virtually every job in film, from writing and directing to the more glamorous tasks of distribution. He has described his time spent behind the desk as "fireman/dentist."

Cush is a pioneer in the field of podcasting, as producer/host of “Cush:Things I Say," an early entry into the world of internet broadcasting. In his spare time, Cush owns a successful sound design company in Los Angeles.
