In 1997, he co-founded Atomic Fridge. The company launched a variety of online projects for Nickelodeon, USA Networks, a Webby Award winning children's site, and many others. An Internet World article was done on Atomic Fridge in 2000.


Since 2004, he has worked as an independent project manager, consultant and software developer through Somebox LLC. More recently, he became a partner in the parking startup Primospot.com, launched Democracy Now! on Rails, and developed the art community site ArtId. He was last seen in NYC building interesting web and mobile applications with Byte Dept., a collective of smart, nerdy people.

Since the fall of 2011 he has been working full-time at local.ch in Zurich. There he leads a team of 8 engineers who develop apps and products for one of the most popular brands in Switzerland, and tackles the challenges of a website that receives millions of visitors daily.


Jeremy is well versed in programming Ruby, Javascript, C, SQL and a few other languages. He is a strong believer in the practices of Agile Development, writing tests, using version control, and maintaining good documentation.

In his spare time, he plays piano, takes lots of photographs, collaborates in indy film, attempts small scale electronics projects, and has learned to juggle. When not coding, he enjoys traveling with his wife Valentina and daughter Ivana.

Jeremy continues to enjoy talking about himself in the third person.
