Jeremy holds a unique position on our team by being our past Creative Director. He designed the look and feel of the Shaman, the Astroman, and The Bolt among other classic kicks. He has been a force to be reckoned with with creative expression in the climbing community for as far back as we can remember. He’s no slouch on the rock either, focusing mostly on remote first ascents, from Patagonia to The Arctic Circle, to Northern China, Yosemite and all points in between. He hails from the heartland where it takes a particular morbid insanity to stay stoked on climbing. That stoke has brought him multiple wins in the annual epic 24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell where he tries (and succeeds) at breaking one record every year. His multi-award winning book and film project DRAWN tells of his FAs around the world, and his brand Meridian Line shares his particular philosophies via a clothing and hangable art product line.
