Born April 25th, 1978, in Evansville, Indiana, Jeff grew up with a Catholic education from kindergarten through high school. This experience is evident in most of his work whether it be an entire theme or just an idea that draws upon religion to create a mood or narrative. After attending architectural schooling for over two years, Jeff became bored and decided to move to Nashville in pursuit of film school. Being a voracious writer already, he had completed several short stories and a feature length film script. Days before his departure to Nashville, he was approached by the producer of a local stage theatre who asked him to write a play for them. He did, and the money made from that became the seed that would grow into what was his film debut, a joint directorial effort with his brother, Steve. Abandoning the idea of film school altogether based on its overpriced tuition and lack of equipment, Jeff set out to co-write and co-direct the thriller Blind, which would become the beginning of his career as a filmmaker. Today Jeff lives in Nashville, writes often, whether it is short fiction or a film script, and is planning his next feature, A Blistering Silence, which he has written and is slated to direct.
