As the Director of Residence Life, Jim works with the other staff members in Residence Life to oversee all aspects of life in Andersen Hall including creating a community of musicians on each floor, ensuring Andersen Hall is a safe and secure place to live, and assisting students to make the most of their time at MSM. In his spare time, Jim loves watching and playing sports, games of all types (card games, word games, dungeons and dragons), and attending MSM performances. You can usually find him around campus with the rest of his family and is easily spotted while walking Bubs!, his large black dog.

Justino Gordon, Coordinator of Residence Life
Alum of MSM (BM 2013) and emerging artist as a young Opera singer, Justino Gordon is also the Coordinator or Residence Life. On top of his very deep passion for cultures, languages, and the arts, he also loves engaging with students; helping them acclimate to the city and to their new lives at the Manhattan School of Music. While an MSM student, friends, teachers, faculty, and administrative staff all contributed to providing Justino with a rich and invaluable education, as well as unforgettable and formative experiences. Justino is very excited to now be in a position to give back that same high quality of formative experiences and aid to all those lucky enough to call MSM “Home”. He welcomes you all to our incredible family!
