-BlueCat Screenplay Competition
After graduating from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, Jeff began pursuing a career as an actor, writer, and producer concentrating on projects related to film and gaming.
Much of his work focuses on telling stories that give new perspective to queer characters and nerdy communities that have often been used as purely comedic devices in the past.
“[Jeff] creates characters that feel authentic and are easy to get an audience invested in.”
