Jeremy Adam Milks was born on February 23, 1986 in the small town of Fairfield, Iowa. After a short stint in Caulksville, Arkansas and a brief return to Fairfield, Jeremy and his family relocated to Cedar Falls, Iowa in 1993 where he has lived ever since.
Jeremy is a 2004 graduate of Cedar Falls High School and a graduate of Hawkeye Community College, receiving an Associate in Applied Arts degree in Graphic Communications in 2012 as well as his Associate in Arts degree in Liberal Arts in 2013. While at Hawkeye, Jeremy became a member of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society and contributed to the 2012 edition of Hawkeye's ETC Magazine, a student art and literature publication.
His film career began in 2004 when he wrote, produced, and directed his first screenplay, titled Homecoming, a slasher film shot in and around Waterloo, Iowa. The film unfortunately was never finished.
In 2005, with the help of his brother Jason, and his friend Toni Wigant, he began production on what was to be a locally produced sit-com titled Eggheads, with Gary Kroeger (Saturday Night Live) attached as a co-producer. Unfortunately it never went into production, however, most of the cast of the sit-com did end up in Jeremy's short film Stranded.
It was during the production of Eggheads that Jeremy and his brother worked as production assistants on the Waco, Texas based zombie film Risen starring GiGi Erneta, Jason Harper, and Joe Thackery. Risen was released in 2008. It was released shortly after in Europe under the title Armageddon of the Dead.
Jeremy spent much of 2007 working on a gangster movie titled Gangster Heaven, and part of 2008 on an exploitation film titled Hell. Both films are unfinished, but Jeremy plans to release them, along with Homecoming, in a documentary titled Fuck You, Jeremy: The Unfinished Works.
In 2010 he completed a screenplay titled Dirty Little Fingers, a crime thriller. While the script went unproduced it did catch the attention of writer/director Jordan Alan who hired Jeremy to write the feature film Cats Dancing on Jupiter, starring Amanda Righetti (Captain America, The Mentalist), Anneliese van der Pol (Vampires Suck, That's So Raven), Jonathan Bennett (Mean Girls), as well as Richard Grieco (21 Jump Street), and Keith Coogan (Adventures in Babysitting.) The film is co-written with Jordan Alan. Jeremy would subsequently work with Alan again, doing an uncredited script update for the film Deconstruction Red.
In 2011 Jeremy completed work on the screenplay for Bag Boys, an indie comedy based on a story by Gene Burnett. The film was optioned by Presque Isle Films with Allison Burnett (Underworld Awakening, Gone, Untraceable, Autumn in New York) attached to produce.
Jeremy is currently working on a script for a comedy, again with Allison Burnett attached to produce, based on a story by Allison Burnett.
