I was spending some time with my nephew over the holidays and we got to discussing the various jobs (or what I call them – gigs) I have held over my career.
We discussed my time as a Photojournalist under a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and editor. How I leveraged that knowledge in content creation to launch my own printing company before turning to the road and studio as a professional musician. We closed those tales with a discussion on my business education and how I leverage it in the entertainment industry. It was interesting to watch his face as I shared my various stories and experiences.
Sometimes I forget just how blessed I have been in my life. Sure, it has taken a LOT of hard work and perseverance. I have been down and out, bankrupt, and technically homeless at times, but I kept moving forward. I kept chasing my passions and my dreams no matter where they took me. Colebrook, NH… Nashville, TN… Orlando, FL… Las Vegas… Scottsdale, AZ… Hawaii… Aculpulco… Glacier Bay… and the Panama Canal to name a few spots.
I really wanted my young nephew to understand that the one thing we can’t get more of is time, so you really need to spend your life doing what you love.
That pushed me to finally organize my experiences on my personal website, which I present to you today. It has been a tedious task tracking down pieces from my graphic design portfolio, images from my time as a photojournalist, tunes from my various bands, and videos captured throughout my career. I have organized these assets into three categories.
Jeremy Larochelle Businessman – For a look at my experience as an entrepreneur. My college and grad school studies. As well as my theories on leadership, management, and marketing.
Jeremy Larochelle Musician – Is where I have placed my work as a touring and studio drummer and educator.
Jeremy Larochelle Content Creator – Here you will find my photojournalism, graphic design, and video creation portfolios as well as my experience in each area.
Finally, I have migrated my online drummer clothing company, Spirit and Groove® to this site.
I plan to continue updating all aspects of my web presence and even have some new offerings in the works, so please come back to see what I am up to.
