A wildlife biologist turned filmmaker.
Growing up in New Hampshire, Jeremy’s passion for wildlife (particularly reptiles and amphibians) started at an early age. He first gained an understanding of the biological sciences, earning a BS in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology and Management from the University of Wyoming. After graduating, he worked a variety of field research jobs from Alaska to Florida.
Confident in his understanding of the sciences, he then put his other foot into the world of film, graduating with honors with a MFA in filmmaking with documentary focus from the New York Film Academy’s Los Angeles campus. Jeremy chose a masters degree in filmmaking instead of focusing only on documentaries because he wanted to learn the elements of narrative film and television that captivates audiences. He hopes to use his knowledge of both ecology and filmmaking to create content that reaches a broader audience than just those who are already interested in conservation and wildlife.
Heavily influenced by wildlife programs growing up, he always knew that he wanted to pursue conservation and public outreach through film and media. But since coming to Los Angeles, filmmaking has become more than a means to an end, it has become a second passion.
His strengths within the industry focus primarily in production design, finding or building a variety of props and set dressings that add to the world of the story, and managing these elements on set.
He also has experience with sound, often working as a boom operator along with a sound-mixing colleague.
