A calm voice of reason among the chaos
Jeremy grew up on the tree-lined streets of Atlanta, but attending graduate school in Boulder has made him a Colorado lifer. One of his heroes is Martin Luther King, Jr., whose legacy pulsed throughout his hometown during his childhood. MLK struck Jeremy as the ultimate master of PR, influencing people through the power of his ideas rather than force. Jeremy started his career as a journalist (he was editor of both his high school and college newspapers), and then blended writing and the art of persuasion to fashion a career in PR. One of his goals is to travel to all seven continents – so far he’s checked off Europe, Asia, Africa and, of course, North America. He lives in Genesee with his wife.
As marketers and public relations practitioners, we’re always interested in understanding how to change public opinion, and there may not be a more dramatic shift than gay rights in America over the past 15 years.
