Jeremy came screaming into this world only 295 moons ago, attached at the brain to his older twin brother, Justin. After several hard yanks the tie between the two was severed. Though separated physically, the two have been able to communicate telepathically ever since.
He grew up with his brother and older sister in Danbury, CT. For fun he would often scale the trees in his backyard until repeated falls forced him down from the branches. After his legs fully healed, he took up running to occupy his time which eventually became more serious in 2010 when he competed overseas in Florence, Italy.
Soon he discovered that running in dress clothes through crowded museums was a faux pas and he was nabbed by authorities. Exiled from Italy and back in America, he pursued a degree in Economics at Ursinus College. Using the laws of supply and demand he managed to work smart, not hard and graduated May 2011.
He loves alternative music, microwaving food, traveling, reading, losing Monopoly with his pride intact and creating his own lolcats.
Jeremy is a linguistic savant, fluent in English, Synthetic Division, Italian, Esperanto, and Twin language.
