Jeffrey Jackson is an artist whose talents and achievements traverse a wide spectrum of the arts. He began his professional career at a very young age in the world of advertising, where he founded his own agency and went on to write and direct award-winning television commercials and video programs for nationally-known clients such as Sony, Western Union, and Merck. He successfully parlayed that experience into the world of the performing arts—first in film and then in the theater. He wrote, directed, and performed in an acclaimed short film, Our First Fight, which has toured film festivals around the world. His feature-length screenplay, White Collared, won the Best Screenplay award at the Santa Barbara Film Festival and was acquired by a Sundance-winning film producer. Jeff has also worked for Disney, writing short films in development. He has recently completed a new, hybrid movie/online game experience entitled Daemon 9, which he wrote and directed.

For the stage, his first work was creating book and lyrics for a faithful musical adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, which ran off-Broadway in late 2007 and starred Tony nominee Hunter Foster. The Associate Press praised it for “bringing the classic tale thrillingly to life.” Gannett Newspapers called it “Dark but consistently engaging,” and Bloomberg radio hailed it as “Riveting!” and “Totally exciting!” The original cast album was released on Ghostlight Records and the play has been published by Playscripts through which it is currently enjoying ongoing stock and amateur-licensed productions around the world. Two Point Oh is his second work for the stage.

Jeff is a member of both Actors Equity and the Dramatists Guild of America and resides in Los Angeles.
