“I had the pleasure of working with Jeremy on season 9 of Gold Rush. Right from the start we had an excellent chemistry. He is a very strong and proficient camera operator with impressive visuals and storytelling skills. I always knew he’d have his camera up and pointing in the right place. I was amazed how he never lost his smile while working on set through difficult circumstances and hard deadlines. His enthusiasm, positive energy and drive to succeed are inspiring. He’s the kind of guy you want on your crew.”
