MA (in progress), Communication, University of Colorado Denver 

BA, magna cum laude, Writing & Directing Across Media, Connecticut College, 2005





Most importantly, Jeremy is a horrendous fisherman but mostly flawless at correcting grammar. 

A nearly-native Denverite, Jeremy graduated from Connecticut College magna cum laude with a self-designed, interdisciplinary degree he called “Writing & Directing Across Media."  He began acting and directing in Connecticut and worked for the renown theater laboratory The Eugene O’Neill Theater Center before returning home to Colorado to continue his life in the arts.  In 2006, he founded No Shame Productions to produce and direct theater, film, and stand-up comedy around the state. 

In 2008, Jeremy departed from California on a 100-day tour of the country in a golf kart.  The initiative amassed hundreds of hours of video and more than 10,000 photos, asking people along the way, “What’s your art?”  The feature documentary about the joys of travel one slow-moving mile at a time and the vibrancy of art in America titled kART Across America played to sold-out crowds in Colorado, Minnesota, and Georgia.  The film is available at

Jeremy has worked for the Center for Advancing Professional Excellence at the CU Denver School of Medicine for eight years, most recently piloting a program in the Foundations of Doctoring curriculum coaching faculty and students through medical communication cases.  His interest is in bettering provider-patient communication to drive more positive outcomes for both parties.​

Jeremy is a proud Puksta Fellow, working on a project to listen to and tell the stories of patients and providers in end-of-life settings.
