In 2009, Jeremy became the Associate Artistic Director/Director of New Play Development at Players Guild Theatre, where he co-launched the theatre’s first new play development and education program, and led/assisted initiatives in public relations, development, and strategic planning.

Then in 2013, Jeremy moved to Lakewood and worked for Cleveland Public Theatre as a performer (Rusted Heart Broadcast, Water Ways and Earth Plays) and administrator/instructor for CPT’s award-winning Student Theatre Enrichment Program (STEP).
