My self-summary
Hey, I’m Jeremy.

I moved here to L.A. in late January from my hometown of Philadelphia.

I like to spend my free time eating at restaurants with friends, reading novels in parks, going to the movies, and attending interesting, quirky events & happenings. (I also try my best to keep up with the almost burdensome amount of current good TV). I like to take long walks through city neighborhoods and go on woodsy hikes through national parks. I like a nice balance between relaxation and social activity. I love conversations that swing on a pendulum between nonsense and the deep psychological truths of humankind. Though I'm not above talking about the weather, when necessary.

I was raised Jewish. I have no religious beliefs anymore (though I do like certain Buddhist teachings) but I'm still all for being hoisted up in a chair repeatedly by several grown men at every possible celebration.

I should be up front and admit that most of my life I've had an addiction to pop-tarts. I go through about a pack a day.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m a writer. Here’s a book I wrote called “Swampy Goes to Prom.” It’s a satire of young adult supernatural romances in which a disturbed teenage girl falls in love with a revolting swamp monster.

Last I looked, the amazon page said that customers who viewed my book also viewed a chandelier, so you know it’s a novel with class. (A chandelier that admittedly only costs $119 but still.)

I'm here in LA, making my way into the entertainment industry. I recently wrapped a gig as an Associate Producer for the ABC game show To Tell the Truth and shortly before I worked for Lip Sync Battle.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, love, and the pursuit of pizza.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tend to lag behind on seeing popular internet things that everyone has seen. I just recently watched R. Kelly's Trapped in the Closet saga for the first time. Quite incredible, for the record.
You should message me if
You're sweet, smart, funny, enjoy laughing a great deal, have a lot of spirit, and most definitely are not a supporter of genocide.
