As a college student, I began teaching myself to design and code websites in 1994. That same year, I presented an example website from a 3.5″ floppy disk to the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. I gave them their first glimpse into “this new thing called the World Wide Web.”
I spent most of my career in marketing and advertising, bringing national brands to life online. Along the way, I gained a small following in the mid-’00s as a podcaster and social media gadfly. I like to think of myself as a D-list internet celebrity.
Nearly 30 years later, I am a UX Manager at Oracle Cerner. I love drawing upon my experience to coach and mentor new generations of talent to do the best work they can. My best coaching tool? Being a cautionary tale.
Jeremy has been producing podcasts since 2008, starting with 5BY5’s The Cocktail Napkin. This show was featured on iTunes’s “New and Noteworthy” section and enjoyed some time in the Top 200 Design podcasts.
In 2012, he tried his hand at running a podcast network, starting misfitrad.io, a network devoted to eclectic voices online. The Shakes, a show Jeremy hosted with friends Pat Piper, Quinn Katherman, and Joy Moeller, was the cornerstone of this network.
In 2018, Jeremy and Paul Armstrong revived their misfitrad.io show Oh My Pod! as Uncle Weepy’s Depression Dungeon. Starting with Episode 28, Jeremy and Paul brought Joy Moeller on to round out the perspectives of the show.
