Off the Grid Studios is excited to announce the addition of two new team members: audio engineer Jeremiah Pierson and writer Sarah Grigg. Both come from completely different backgrounds and bring tremendous skills and expertise to our collective.
While he’s clocked nine years as a full-time audio engineer, Jeremiah’s foremost passion lies in physics. He chose sound engineering as a channel for his love of amplitudes, wavelengths and music, focusing on the science of audio. While traveling far and wide throughout the U.S., Australia and New Zealand, Jeremiah fell in love with film and storytelling. It was through his global experiences that he found the perfect marriage for combining the left and right sides of his brain, that is, engineering sound for outdoor film.
Jeremiah has covered broad territory in the world of sound design–from working on tour to fixed in-house gigs for venues, and as an academic instructor. His work has brought him into collaboration with diverse musical artists, ranging from Burlesque orchestra to funk, heavy metal, hip hop, country, and bluegrass.
Sarah brings a background in communication, the natural sciences and management.
In 2003, she arrived to the holy water of Idaho’s Henry’s Fork as a research intern with the Henry’s Fork Foundation. She spent the next decade in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem tracking grizzlies and wolverines, managing ranches and fishing lodges, and planning events large and small. She’s brings a wealth of knowledge from her time with The Nature Conservancy, the U.S. Forest Service, Idaho Fish and Game, the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival, Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures, and the American Fly Fishing Trade Association. She is fluent in Spanish and spent a portion of her graduate studies in the Namibian bush, living in a thatched-roof longhouse. Her fiction, narrative nonfiction and journalistic pieces have published in The Drake, Field and Stream, Guernica, TROUT, MidCurrent, Big Sky Journal, Jackson Hole Magazine, Shenandoah, and other outlets.
