I am a member and contributor to the Plymouth Sustainability and Surfing Research Group, which explores humanity’s interaction with the environment through the lens of a wave.   As a regional Surfers Against Sewage Rep (East Coast), I’m dedicated to help empower ‘you’ to make a difference! I aim to infuse my surf culture research focus skills to expand the network of undergraduate surfers and look towards solving a number of pressing issues. Out of the educational world, Jeremy works under the title of ArmchairHero. AH’s work evolves, encompasses and now manifests within PRINT AND SCREEN, STATIC AND FILM BASED PROJECTS. Lets see just where this takes me…
