Jeremiah Davis aka “That One Blond Kid” spends half of the year living in Venice Beach, CA and the other half traveling as a videographer & content creator for influencers, brands and artists. Raised in Claremont, CA he was surrounded by three older brothers and a very supportive family. Baseball was one of his early passions and by the time he made it to college he tossed the towel in and focused on his camera.
His life took a turn when he slid through the DM of Rory Kramer, a professional videographer and brought him value by shooting drone footage for him. He would go on to connect with Dave Lingwood, a member of MTV’s The Buried Life and was soon traveling the world with The Chainsmokers with full creative control. Back in September of 2017 his Snapchat Discover Series “Without Limits” launched which was him and his friends traveling around the world pushing themselves to do unimaginable things that most people wouldn’t dare to do. If you live in Los Angeles look up in the sky because you might see him jumping out of a plane or even a hot air balloon.
One of the main takeaways from this episode is that there are no limits. You want to travel the world and get paid to do it? Find a way. You’d like to own your own restaurant and be the head chief? It’s for sure possible. You wanna become the next top podcaster? Well… you’re up against me but don’t let that stop you. There are no limits to what we can or can’t do in this world and it’s up to us to find that way.
