What do you do? (job, community involvement): Studio coordinator at FDLTCC Ojibwemowining Digital Arts & Storytelling Studio (ODAS). I also freelance as a videographer and music producer/performer/artist with DanSan Creatives.

What is important to you? True love; treating myself and others with respect; the message of the one we call Christ Jesus; freedom; financial literacy

How do you spend your free time? In my free time outside of work, I enjoy hanging out with my wife, Krista; we have been renovating our home. I spend time making and planning music and video projects. It’s always good to see family and friends when I get free time. Lately, I have been playing Call of Duty Warzone and listening to podcasts. I like learning about history, science, health and wealth! I also spend time in prayer.

From nominator: "Jeremy is just naturally gifted; he has great energy, wonderfully humble and holds himself and his work to an incredibly high standard." — Moira Villiard
