Hello! I’m Jeremiah

I help students learn new tools, technology and storytelling techniques as a digital journalism professor at American University.

I train the next generation of digital journalists with transformative skills in emerging media.

UX design, human-centered design and design thinking

Immersive storytelling, 360° video, HTML/CSS coding and long scroll experiences

Career counseling, digital portfolio guidance and student mentorship

I’m fierce about bringing emerging media into the classroom.

I teach a variety of digital, multimedia and broadcast courses as a Professorial Lecturer in the Journalism Division at American University’s School of Communication.

Whether it’s coding, immersive storytelling, podcasting or UX design, I equip students with the skills they’ll need for ever-evolving newsrooms.

Student Praise

“His enthusiasm and passion for digital journalism is contagious.”

“Truly one of my best professors.”

“I learned things that I wasn’t even thinking of in terms of journalism and the world of storytelling.”

“I actually feel like I am going to use the things that I’ve learned in this course when I leave AU. Not every class can do that so I appreciate everything that Jeremiah has taught us.”

I teach a range of digitally-focused courses.

From HTML/CSS to writing fundamentals, producing 360° video to covering D.C. neighborhoods, I work with both undergraduates new to the field and graduate students honing their craft.
