About Jeremy

Jeremy grew up in the industrial town of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Even as he was studying Landscape Architecture at Penn State University, he was fascinated by 3D modeling, animation, and editing. Much of his early work in Landscape Architecture involved visual experiments with the archaic modeling and animation technology available at the time. After graduation, he lingered on the east coast before relocating to the San Francisco Bay area to work in Urban Planning. Before getting his MFA in Film, Jeremy had already lived many lives: Landscape Architect, Urban Planner, Software Developer, and Actor. It wasn’t until he put is architectural background to use as Production Designer in the short film Die Mekaniks, that he truly realized his calling to film production. Jeremy’s very first work, “The Chase” garnered him a first place award in the Epidemic Super-8 Film Festival. His thesis project, Flapjack (Directed By Val Blakely) was featured at the Canne Short film corner in 2012 and won awards in the Mexican International Film festival and the LA Movie Awards. Jeremy lives in Los Angeles with his cat, Xero, and makes a living as a Cinematographer and a 1st Assistant Cameraman working on feature films, television shows and commercials.
