Jeremy Reed lives in Portland, OR where he works as a barista. In the past he has been a line cook, sauté cook, dishwasher, and server. At one point he delivered the mail for 3 utterly miserable years. His first job, at 15, was a janitor's assistant at a highway rest stop. All jobs are the same, with slight changes in the nuance of their claims about being different from other jobs. His first chapbook of poetry "Furniture" was published in 2015.
