Jeremy Michael Ward is a web developer, drummer, stand-up comedy bystander, lazy poet, occasional illustrator, lover of books, and avid video & board game geek. He currently spends his days working as a front-end web developer for Westwerk in Northeast Minneapolis and nights rehearsing with his band, Loud Nerves.

When not at work or out playing music, Jeremy can be found in a Twin Cities coffee shop working on coding projects, researching tools and techniques to extend his skill set, or dreaming up ways to make a difference in the web and software development communities. He is a co-organizer of the annual Midwest PHP Conference and a regular attendee of the MNPHP and JavaScriptMN meetup groups.

Jeremy resides in St. Paul, MN with his girlfriend Abby and their cat, Flip, and sometimes writes about himself in the third-person.
