Jeremy Dolan

Jeremy Dolan was born and raised in Sussex, England. He discovered his love of engineering at a young age, and often took things apart just to put them back together again. Later, he delved deeper into the subject as he pursued Design Technology in A-levels. He graduated from Birmingham University with a degree in Geology. Soon after leaving school, he was selected for the cast of STOMP, and spent almost a decade drumming for the show in London, Paris, and Boston.

Jeremy began teaching himself programming during his years as a performer. When he left the stage in 2007, he began a successful second career as a freelance web developer, and continued his education with programming classes at UCLA.

Prior to joining Faudo/Get Online NOLA full time in Fall 2014, Jeremy worked as a programmer for Peter Mayer Advertising, where he specialized in email marketing and WordPress development.
In his spare time, Jeremy enjoys playing rugby for Crescent City Blues, cycling, gardening, and going camping with his family.
