As Project Manager, Jeremy is responsible for making sure that the right work is getting done, and that it’s getting done on time. This requires understanding the processes of each team member, and communicating with clients to make sure their needs are fully understood. With tools like milestones, gantt charts, and network diagrams, he’s helping the team stay on task, create their best work, and have fun while doing it.
Jeremy started wrangling art and design projects over 10 years ago, working as an operational manager by day and a freelance designer by night. He quickly saw that formal project management techniques were a necessity and enrolled at Penn State University, eventually earning a bachelor’s degree in Business Management.
As an adult student, he consistently led peer groups such as the Business Club and attended every local entrepreneur and small business event available. It was through these networking and leadership opportunities that he eventually connected with Coal Creative.
He kept equally active outside the classroom, designing hundreds of professional print documents, building dozens of websites, creating and selling tens of thousands of stickers, and even leading the design, layout, and publishing efforts behind several books for local authors.
When he’s not managing projects at Coal Creative, Jeremy passionately pursues design and art projects, always striving to create digital experiences that make people smile. His most popular work is Wallace.dog (@wallacedotdog), an ongoing animation series highlighting the adventures of his pet Corgi as a pixel pup.
