Jerrold spent his childhood in southeastern Pennsylvania ingesting far too many TV shows and movies, thus creating a stark-raving mad geek. His addiction has led to an unhealthy and rabid obsession of various geek pantheons in film and television – Star Trek, Star Wars, both DC *AND* Marvel, James Bond, Supernatural, Doctor Who, cult 80's and 90's television, Lost, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, and, and...holy overload! He's still waiting to run away in a 1967 Impala, the Enterprise-D, or a blue police box (bigger on the inside of course).
