The Background: Jeff started his career producing television commercials in his hometown of Fresno, California. After a few years, he came across the opportunity to make a living talking about his favorite thing: movies. That's when he moved to St. Louis, MO in order to start CinemaBlend's first video department. Eventually he moved to Los Angeles, where he resides today, in order to pursue in-person opportunities covering events and interviewing talent. Emily Blunt once told him he looked "better than Dwayne Johnson," Jim Carrey once told him he has a "great name," and his mother once told him he was a "disappointment."
What He's Into: Jeff is simply a film buff who refuses to stop romanticizing the Oscars, no matter how unpopular they become. He's a fan of comedy. Specifically, SNL, anything late night, and political satire/commentary. When he feels sad, he re-watches episodes of 30 Rock. When he feels hopeless, he re-watches episodes of The West Wing. When he feels like he's stuck in second gear, he re-watches episodes of Friends. In his free time he dabbles in screenwriting, time-lapse photography, and complaining that the rent is too damn high.
What He's Excited About Right Now: Witnessing Timothée Chalamet's career trajectory over the next 20 years.
