Jeff has been practicing origami for over 25 years. His love of animals as a kid inspired him to learn origami so he could fold his own paper zoo. He bought a number of origami books and folded during long family trips and in his spare time, mostly folding animals and traditional models. He began working with Taro’s Origami Studio in 2014 and has loved being part of Taro’s staff and community of folders. He has taught students of all ages and skill levels, and folded models for corporate commissions and live events.
In addition to being an origami teacher, Jeff is a theater artist with extensive performing, directing and teaching credits. He enjoys crafting his origami with the same eye for dynamic contour and character that he brings to his theatre work, and believes in empowering the inner artist through creative education. He is a graduate of George Washington University, New York University and the Dell’Arte School of Physical Theatre.
