San Diego, CA

My name is Jeremiah.

I’m an author, mouthpiece, mentor, and bulldog lover.

Ultimately, all of my work is about helping people reframe the way they think about brand innovation.

I wrote, The Lean Brand, the first book to bring the rigor of lean startup principles to the marketing black box of branding. I'm the founder of #LeanBrandLab, a 2-day brand innovation accelerator, and I travel the world debunking the "Myth of the Brand Genius" and helping founders, intrapreneurs, and startup folks discover, develop, and deliver value to their audience.

I'm a big fan of Hemmingway, dixie jazz pressed on hard vinyl, and triple ligero cigars. I married an incredible woman and entrepreneur, Jessie Gardner, and we are tolerated daily by our Olde English Bulldog – his eminence – Sir Hamilton.
