As a former engineer, Jeremy knows that many people do not understand how the beautiful minds of geeks are functioning. So he jumped to the marketing side and became the medium to help ordinary people understand the beauty of technology. Outside the office, he loves playing video games with his family, sipping wine with his wife, or answering his son’s non-stop questions like Wikipedia.
