Jim Matthews

Front Desk Receptionist

Jim Matthews is the part-time Front Desk Receptionist, working mornings and early afternoons. He is a graduate of the SAGEWorks program, which was recommended to him after several years of volunteering at SAGE's dinner check-in table. Working for SAGE is Jim’s “Second Act” career; after graduating from Binghamton University with a B.S. in Business Management, he spent over a decade seriously pursuing a career in music. This led to a job with ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers), where he stayed for 27 years in a variety of positions, always with two major requirements—a broad knowledge of American popular music and an obsessive attention to detail. At the end of 2014, he retired from ASCAP determined to use his skills in a more public service-focused organization. His past experience as a volunteer with GMHC, Hearts & Voices, New York Cares, the New York Public Library, the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, the Paley Center for Media, and most importantly SAGE led to his position here which he calls “the most interesting job of my life.”
