Jeremy is a senior software developer dedicated to helping Rooted Farmers continue to grow. Growing up in rural Illinois, he worked in his family's tree removal business which is why he is usually the developer on the team who is most comfortable with a chainsaw. After college, he became interested in languages and worked as a language teacher in St. Louis, Latin America and the Middle East, which was an incredible way to see the world. Since making a career change to software, Jeremy has built business solutions for the construction, financial, entertainment and staffing industries amongst others. When not writing software, Jeremy spends time on his small farm in Illinois working on a small-scale experiment in converting row crop production to perennial, tree-based agriculture.
