He attended the prestigious Cours Florent in Paris where he studied Drama in both English and French, and got his first paid gig in 2010 in Voice Acting while also shooting short films.

Though he got accepted in both schools, Jeff decided to go back to Paris to complete the Performing Arts Program offered by the 9th District Conservatory.
Shortly after returning from the States, Jeff was contacted by a producer who offered him an actor role on the US Feature "Shadow People", starring Robert Dallas (The Walking Dead) and directed by Matthew Arnold.
In 2014, he was cast as a hipster in "Puerto Ricans in Paris", starring Luis Guzman (How to Make It in America, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) and French actress Alice Taglioni (Paris-Manhattan).
After completing this latest role, Jeff moved to Vancouver BC where he studied with Loretta Walsh and Andrew McIlroy, before coming back to Europe where he recorded numerous roles in voice acting. Recent voice acting credits include, but are not limited to: Degrassi: Next Class, Orange is the New Black, Love, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Gumball, Beyblade Burst, If You Give a Mouse a Christmas Cookie...
