Seven questions... with Jeremy Simmons

  1. Who are you and what do you do?
    Jeremy Simmons. I create stuff: Music, fiction, screenplays, art, bacon sandwiches.
  2. What are you working on at the moment?
    A radioplay for the BBC Radioplay competition 2012.
  3. Who inspires you?
  1. Name an artist who has inspired you.
    Paul Klee
  2. Name a place that has inspired you.
    Ault Park
  3. Name some "thing" that has inspired you.

  1. What drives you to do what you do?
    I love creating things, expressing ideas, creating and telling stories. More than loving it, I feel more like I have to, or I'll go mad (in the bad way).
  2. What values do you wish your creativity to express?I wouldn't know how to distill that into any kind of simple answer. Humanity? The melancholy of the human condition?
  3. What role does community play in what you do?
    Not a lot, to be honest. I don't feel that where I live is any more my community than New York or Seoul or the Australian outback. I've never really felt a warm and fuzzy “hometown love.” Although, Cincinnati chili is pretty sublime.
  4. What is next for what you do?
    More. Try and make the next thing better than the last.
