Process Driven: Longform discussions around the why of creativity.


Process Driven allows me to go deep with people leading creative lives across a range of genres who I've been inspired by for years or have recently discovered. From photographers like Dan Winters to musicians like Glenn D'Cruze as well as artists, writers and filmmakers, I ask provocative questions from a place of admiration and respect that result in honest, insightful conversations.

  • “Jeffery can only be described as a true gentleman and ambassador for the arts, in particular the visual arts. I had the personal pleasure of being interviewed by Jeffery and is was a pleasure in every way. His ability to reveal the positive and the passion from his guests is a true talent and one that I would recommend to anyone.”
    Karl Taylor
    Photographer and Photography Instructor
  • “Jeffery is one of those rare people who is able to connect with strangers instantly and make them feel like he is an old friend. His natural sense of curiosity is infectious, and the stories he tells are the ones I want to hear.”
    John Keatley
    Photographer
  • “Anyone can ask questions, but the real skill of a talented interviewer is in the relationships. Jeffery has a way of connecting and turning what is so often just a string of unrelated questions into a conversation. His respect and curiosity make him the kind of host I look forward to spending time with.”

FROM PROPAGANDA TO ABSTRACTS.

My mixed-media paintings are rooted in materials and inspired by artists like Robert Rauschenberg and Cy Twombly. My work combines multiple layers of chroma, emulsion transfers, ephemera, and found objects to create both literal and narrative depth.

Iterations: My occasional brain-dump of thoughts, inspiration, and ideas.

As one listener put it, "if Process Driven is the meal, Iterations is the appetizer." Each episode offers a brief anecdote or thoughts around a central theme or idea, along with a few items of inspiration that have caught my eye since the last episode.

The latest from my blog.

I don't write nearly as much as I'd like to, but some of what I do write ends up here.

I'm sharing my photographs on Instagram.

I'm an amateur in the best sense of the word. I've been taking pictures for more than 30 years.
