JASON TYNE-ZIMMERMAN is the drama teacher at Longleaf High School of the Arts (a brand new charter school in Raleigh, NC). A theater director from New York City who moved down to Cary to avoid psychological claustrophobia – a medical term that he coined. He lived in NYC for over a decade before deciding that he wasn’t a New Yorker. Before that he lived in New Jersey, but he doesn’t talk like he’s from the Jersey Shore. You want to hear a real New Jersey accent? Listen to Hugh Laurie on House.
