Jeff Hargis

Special Ops

Whether it’s tracking down unique supplies, prepping for an event, or feeding the studio masses, Jeff is our go-to guy. Since he started in the Photostat room in 1985, a lot has changed. And Jeff has reinvented himself and his career to align with the studio throughout its evolution. In the matte room, he wows with his X-ACTO as he carefully assembles comps. In the studio kitchen, he whips up award-winning jambalaya, world-famous stuffed peppers, and America’s best guacamole. An avid outdoorsman, he also serves as the studio’s guide-in-residence for all things Pure Michigan.

LIFE MOTTO

Do what you Love. Love what you do.

FAVORITE SKIDMORE MEMORY

Ellen Yee’s bunny-themed anniversary party.

DREAM ADVENTURE

A thru-hike of the North Country Trail.

MY IDEAL MEAL

For an appetizer, escargot broiled in their shells with parsley garlic butter, served with a glass of Pouilly-Fuissé. Next, steak au poivre with wild mushrooms and frite served with warm crusty bread and a nice Bordeaux. Then comes salad with some good stinky cheese. Crème brûlée for desert.

MY KIND OF FUN

Growing veggies, fostering/adopting animals in need, jam sessions on drums.
