Jeremy Hardwood

Jeremy is a second year media production student from Ottawa who is interested in sports, comedy and music. On a weekend you might expect him to be working or partying, but he is more likely to be going down a wikipedia rabbit hole or making horrible financial decisions.

At home he has a weird looking dog named Vanessa but he loves her nonetheless. Jeremy is very excited to join the Spirit Live team and hopes his blogs can get a couple laughs out of his readers.
