Hi! I’m Jeremy Pawelek.


For the past 17 years, I’ve been everything from an illustrator to an animator to a full stack programmer to a DIY maker. In 2016, I achieved a lifelong dream and became part of The Walt Disney Company, where I work as an Interactive Designer for Yellow Shoes Studios.


In addition to my digital passions, I am a tinkerer and a creator. I was the kid who would get into trouble for taking apart the radio to see how it worked, but I was also the kid who would put it back together – sometimes better than before!


I continue that spirit in all that I do – I like to push the boundaries of what I can do, and I have the attitude that “no” is never an acceptable answer.


Thanks for taking the time to visit my site – if you have any questions, feel free to hit me up on any of my social media accounts, but mostly instagram.
