Jeremy is no stranger to CIP.  As an improvisor, teaching artist, and emcee, he has been part of the team since 2006.  This August he stepped into the role of Education Director, and couldn’t be happier about it

Jeremy’s belief that improvisation is a tremendously powerful tool for educators is integral to his approach to the craft.  He leads improv classes for all ages at The Metropolis Performing Arts Centre, tours interactive storytelling assemblies through Urban Gateways, facilitates workshops, trainings, and social issues performances for Imagination Theater, and has performed in each of Chicago Improv Productions’ numerous outreach programs.

He is passionate about sharing improvisation as both an art form and life philosophy with eager students throughout the state.
