Visual Artist. Actor. Singer. Dancer & Electronic Music Activist.
Growing up and soul searching within the Toronto electronic music & dance community, Jeremy was constantly surrounded by amazing artists, dancers, designers, promoters, DJs & musicians who have helped inspired him to pursue a career in the arts. He has allowed a lot of the culture to influence his craft. From his drawings to his personal style, electronic music has always played a huge role in his life.
In 2007, Jeremy has graduated from Sheridan College for Visual Arts & Performing Arts. In addition, he has also graduated from The Second City for improvisation training and graduated from Sears & Switzer for On Camera Training, TV Voice-Overs, TV Commercials & Scene Study work. He has also been really grateful to be able to study acting with such respectable film & TV Canadian mentors such as Simon Longmore, Gloria Mann, Stephanie Gorin, Gail Harvey, Kevin Hartley, Tom Todoroff(U.S.), and Brian Levy(to name a few). Right now he is working on promoting his art portfolio and craft and getting more exposure in Toronto, Vancouver & Montreal as a visual artist and as a performer.
Upon graduating, Jeremy has worked with vocal experts Christina James(Sheridan College), Louisa Burgess Corbett(Sheridan/ George Brown College), and 2003 Original Canadian Idol Winner, Ryan Malcolm. He has also been dancing for twelve years strong and has worked with such musical talent on music videos and projects such as Shawn Desman ('Nobody Does It Like You' & 'Too Young To Care' music video), Jesse Labelle( 'Easier' music video), Carmen & Camille, Devine Brown, & Dearly Beloved. He has also worked with Juno nominated artists Deadmau5('Ghost & Stuff' music video) and D-Sisive('To The Moon' & 'A Little Song For You' music video). He is also very thankful to work with such creative and inspiring directors such as Marc André Debruyne, Kyle Kofsky, Alex Colthart, & Andy Wood. Jeremy's modeling credits also include: Tristian Style, Gap, Guess Jeans, Kolor Shades, Government of Ontario 'Summer Company' ad campaign( 2010 & 2011), Fairies Pyjamas ( Kensington Market, Toronto ), Trojan Condoms 'Naked Sensations', Hastens Beds, Almost Naked Clothing, J-Com Clothing, ethical dance wear Me to We Style & The Fall Clothing show '09(Toronto).

On January 14th 2013, Jeremy joined Actra by landing his first union actor role on the Canadian Sci Fi TV series Orphan Black. On July 9th 2013, Jeremy earns his second Actra credit by landing the role of a zombie in a commercial for the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival & Royal Bank of Canada. His hard work continues to pay off when Simon Longmore, the founder of the Vancouver Academy of Dramatic Arts(aka VADA studios), approached Jeremy and offered him the second highest scholarship awarded(within the first 13 years running) to come and train at his Dramatic Arts Program at Vada Studios, which starts September 2013 for six months.
While living in Vancouver, Jeremy auditioned for the second annual Vancouver Alternative Fashion Week(VALT2013), which he was able to walk on the runaway for steampunk mask designer, Shay Lhea. For her groundbreaking and showstopping 'Oculto Mask' collection.
While training at VADA studios, in order to maintain his scholarship and reduce Vancouver living expenses, in the span of six months, Jeremy has moved around to five different living arrangements. In October 2013, he ended up living in a vintage retro 60s RV located in Olypic Village for 28days. Surving the RV with no running water, no heat, no built in bathroom, and runned on solar power, Jeremy used the experience to add to his drive and passion for the love of the craft. On March 7th 2014, Jeremy graduated from the Vancouver Academy of Dramatic Arts.
On his days off in the summertime, Jeremy loves to travel rural and northern Ontario and Montreal attending 4-day long electronic music festivals such as Om Festival, World Electronic Music Festival( W.E.M.F.), Digital Dreams, Teknival, Harvest Festival, and his home away from home at Eclipse(Montreal). He hopes to one day go on spiritual pilgrimages to places such as Shambhala(B.C.), Lightning in a Bottle(Silverado, CA), BOOM Festival(Portugal), Ozora(Hungary), Rainbow Serpent(Australia), and his dream vacation to Burning Man(Nevada desert). Jeremy loves to use his creative skill set and create set designs for Promise Parties, when they throw their electronic music events, and also frequents their annual Cherry Beach Sunday summer parties. He also loves to continuously support Toronto arts & culture gatherings such as Gay Pride, Freedom Festival, Beats Breaks & Culture at the Harbourfront Center(discontinued), The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibit, Doors Open Toronto, and has attended every Nuit Blanche from 2006 to 2012.
