Jeff was born in an abandoned town in the California desert, raised in Hawaii, and educated at USC Film School. After working at a dilapidated film studio in Russia, he began to edit for the likes of NBC, Paramount, Warner Bros, Capitol Records, and Lucasfilm's Skywalker Ranch.
Craving the unexpected, Jeff directed the offbeat feature documentary Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea, which was narrated by John Waters. The film screened at 200 film festivals worldwide, winning 37 awards for Best Documentary.
Jeff lived in Afghanistan to edit the documentary In-Justice, about women imprisoned for supposed moral crimes. He also directed and photographed several short docs and an Emmy-nominated special for the show Artbound for KCET in Los Angeles.
