Jared has always had a passion for entertainment, music, and filmmaking. In school a teacher challenged him to focus on his passion for creating videos and content and he soon realized that a career in entertainment was not just a daydream but a real possibility. Since then he’s striven to get his hands on any great project possible and cut his teeth along the way working with other young and aspiring filmmakers and directors.
He received his B.A. in Film and Media Production from the ASU Herberger Institute For Design and the Arts. Moving to Los Angeles after graduation he got his start working on and editing low budget productions for syndicated TV and internet comedy videos. Realizing that he wasn’t using his full potential he quickly started producing and managing projects for directors and production companies.
Jared has worked as a freelancer producer, executive producer, and most recently creative director and video commissioner for Interscope Records and has produced and worked on hundreds of productions ranging in commercial, documentary, VR, short form and music content. He’s collaborated with music artists such as Imagine Dragons, OneRepublic, X Ambassadors, Walk The Moon, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Band Of Horses, K.Flay, Sting, Lana Del Rey, Rae Sremmurd, and tons of talented developing artists.
Having worked with every major record label and great indie labels – he still enjoys the thrill of making artists visions and dreams come to life! Music has always been a lifeblood of his and being able to be surrounded by amazing musicians, singers, artists, and bands has been a joy and privilege. Jared is thrilled to be sharing his experience in music videos and productions to the next class of up and coming filmmakers and students.
