Through his partnership with ThreeHouse Studios, his illustrative work is brought to life through animation and live action footage. His film/stage production “The Wolf & The Medallion” won the Banff Center’s Creative Excellence Award, and 5 Point Film Festivals Best of The Fest. His map and clothing brand, Meridian Line™ is available online and in numerous retail locations including many US National Parks. 

He has helped raise thousands of dollars for various causes and non-profits including pediatric brain cancer research, The Access Fund, American Alpine Club, Habitat For Humanity, Causecentric and water.org. He has also donated his time and talents in Venezuela, where he and his team delivered solar power to a small village. He later returned to that village to lead creative art projects with the children.

On the rock, Jeremy has pioneered more than 300 new routes in the United States. He has notable first ascents in Argentina, Venezuela, Canada, and China. In his recent book and film “DRAWN- The Art of Ascent”, he tells stories from the four directions using his first ascent climbs as a platform to explore universal ideas of purpose and finding direction.
