Jim Rice was born in Chicago in 1968. He has been married to Melissa Arceneaux of Thibodaux, Louisiana for 31 years and has a daughter Jessica. Jim is a former U.S. Army Physician Assistant (PA). After his second combat tour in Iraq and 21 years of service, he retired to life as a civilian PA. Although, he is retired, he continues to practice Emergency Medicine part time.

Jim and Melissa currently live in a small country town known as Raceland, Louisiana. Although they are only 45 minutes west of New Orleans, they enjoy the country atmosphere. When Jim is not helping run SABOT Miniatures, seeing patients or painting figures, you can find him chasing after speckled trout and redfish.
