*Hybrid aspects of the conference
Jeremie Saunders is an award-winning actor, producer and host of the hit podcast, Sickboy. Born and raised on the East Coast of Canada, Jeremie is a strong voice in rethinking the way people look at illness and disease. He lives with a genetic lung disease called Cystic Fibrosis.
Jeremie discovered his passion for performance through competitive improv. He studied acting at Ryerson Theatre School. Soon after, Jeremie began his career as a professional actor as a host on the Canadian Screen Award and Gemini-winning CBC television series, “ARTZOOKA!” and the National Film Board of Canada's educational documentary series, “Space School.”
In the culmination of Jeremie's affinity for laughter and education, Sickboy Podcast was created. Listed as one of iTunes' Best of 2015, the Sickboy Podcast is produced and hosted by Jeremie and his two best friends, Taylor MacGillivary and Brian Stever. Together, they explore conversations with a wide range of guests, talking and laughing about the experiences of living with terminal or chronic illness. Sickboy Podcast aims to tear down the walls of stigma and find levity in an otherwise dark situation.
Jeremie is a brilliant speaker, his keynotes having been described as “simply the most thought-provoking, powerful talk I've ever witnessed.” CBC released an acclaimed documentary on Sickboy, just weeks before Jeremie gave a rousing standing ovation for his talk at TEDxToronto.
Jeremie is currently based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia where he lives with his wife Bryde.
