A jack of all trades is a master of none, but still oftentimes better than a master of one.
I enjoy elegant and practical answers to complex questions.
My work has largely involved turning detailed information into highly consumable stories in a variety of digital mediums.
I’ve been designing and producing websites professionally since 2001 and have over 18 years of experience in digital content management in television as an award-winning journalist.
In my free time I am a writer, beekeeper, naturalist, drone pilot, photographer, homesteader, glass-blower, outdoorsman and life-long learner. I’m also a lover of cooking and cuisine.
I am a proud futurist with an optimist’s understanding of where the world is headed. Let’s talk about possibilities with measurable results. I’d love to hear your ideas.
Non-traditional background and far-ranging education
After graduating from high school with a college prep focus I began my secondary school education by majoring in Biology (Botany). I also had a philosophy minor. Three years later I changed my major to Art (Sculpture). I went on to study Creative Writing in the last two years of schooling.
My education has never ended, and I have learned that everyone has something to teach me.

WWMT / Kalamazoo, Michigan
Jeremy's strengths are numerous including website construction, personally relating with customers through social media savvy, code deciphering. What kind of code? Doesn't matter, wherever the ball is on the metaphysical field, he's likely already several steps ahead. Jeremy brings a natural inquisitiveness, creativity, and easy brilliance that's a fit in any environment intimate or larger. He's one of the kindest, most affable people I've ever met.
Jeremy has a great knack for balancing the creative with the analytic. He is a great copy editor and writer, as well as a manager of data online. With a positive attitude, Jeremy was also a pleasure to work with day in and day out in the pressure-filled environment of the newsroom.
Jeremy has great attention to detail. He's a solid team player who willingly puts himself out for the good of the project or job. My time with Jeremy taught me to go deeper, run harder and find the places that need improvement and make em perfect. An asset to any team!
Executive Director / Spiritual Director
Jeremy worked for me when I was News Director at WWMT many years ago. I found him to be extremely creative and have a very good handle on the business, especially when it came to breaking news and "out of the box" initiatives. Since WWMT, I've been following Jeremy and have been extremely proud of his accomplishments since our time together in television. So much so, I have tried to hire him on several occasions, but he's a Michigan guy....
Jeremy is also very dependable, loyal and extremely hard working. He has a nice way with people, but challenges co-workers simultaneously. If you're looking for someone who can get the job done (and done right), an employee who wants to win, is very competitive and will stay out of your office. This is the guy for you.
