While on a holiday trip back to Omaha, taking a break from his study of applied design in Little Rock, Arkansas, Jeremy learned about Bench in a strange turn of coincidence. As Jeremy describes it, Bench was exactly the type of creative community he had been looking for. He was hooked after his first visit in 2013.
Having spent much of his formative years with his grandparents, Jeremy was influenced by their resourcefulness and their desire not to see anything go to waste. This idea finds it’s way into Jeremy’s design as he incorporates pieces that might cast off by other builders. The result of this philosophy is a clean, modern, if somewhat eclectic aesthetic that works well with many design styles.
