Adapt is the Emmy award winner for both sound design and human interest in the 2022 Michigan Regional Emmy Awards.
Jeff doesn't lead a normal lifestyle between being a masonry contractor, building his own home, and his adventurous spirit. So, when he was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer of the bladder, he had a decision to make about how he was going to adapt.
With young children and years’ worth of projects ahead of him, Jeff opted for his bladder to be surgically removed and the reconstruction of a new bladder to take its place (a neobladder). His resilient perspective led to a speedy recovery and eventually, serving his community during the most trying times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
