Jeremy Wells


Jeremy started at Light House (then called Jigsaw Housing) in 2012, after a significant period of post-uni aimless wandering. Aimless, but nevertheless a rich and fruitful experience that started along the central/north coast on a bicycle, brought about a stint working at a bamboo plantation in Queensland, and settled him for a couple of years in Marrickville, Sydney working as a bicycle mechanic. Outside of the office, Jeremy spends his time building unusual structures in and around his house and making odd drawings which sometimes appear in small galleries around Canberra.
