Jeremy has been passionate about video games and programming from a young age, writing his first game in BASIC for the Commodore 64 at age 7. Growing up in a military family, he’s spent time in a lot of different places around the world. As a teenager, Jeremy fell in love with the world of agriculture while working on an 800 acre farm in southern Minnesota, farming corn and soybeans while also helping out local hog and dairy operations. In 2000, Jeremy moved to the Metro Detroit area to focus on a career in Software Development. Shortly after being introduced to Farming Simulator in 2018, Jeremy started a YouTube channel known as “Kederk Farms” where he has cultivated his love for North American farming.
With over 20 years of software development experience, Jeremy has had many roles ranging from Developer to Chief Technology Officer, working in industries ranging from healthcare to automotive. A firm believer that titles don’t matter, he prefers to be known as “guy who gets stuff done” and is always looking to learn new things. Jeremy joined SquadBuilt Inc. in 2021 as a Lead Developer and Executive Producer, and is excited to finally be able to merge his love for agriculture with his passion for software development.
A husband and father of 2 boys, Jeremy and his family enjoy traveling and visiting at least one new location each year. When he’s not working or spending time with his family, Jeremy is a stereotypical nerd who loves video games of all genres, DM’s regular D&D sessions for a group of friends and loves creating video game content and doing live streams on YouTube. Other hobbies include astrophotography, miniature tabletop wargaming and mecha anime.
