Jeremy is a film writer, director, and producer named one of the "25 New Faces of Independent Film" by Filmmaker Magazine.
He co-wrote and co-directed the coming-of-age sports comedy Tracktown with Alexi Pappas with support from the Sundance Institute and the San Francisco Film Society, and this was premiered at the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival. Jeremy's award-winning first feature film, Tall as the Baobab Tree, was shot on location in rural Senegal several miles from the nearest paved road with a cast of local villagers. It headlined the NYC Human Rights Watch Film Festival and screened at over 50 film festivals before being released by Sundance Artist Services in 2014. Jeremy's distinct directing style blends narrative with documentary techniques and has been compared to legendary filmmakers like Satyajit Ray (by the New York Times), Peter Weir, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Even though he is not an Olympian, he is highly inspired in his work, by the Olympic Values, like in Tracktown.
