He previously held Artistic Director positions for the New View Theater in Southern California, the Manitou Playhouse in Maine and the Sands Theater Center in Florida. He is currently the Artistic Director for the Matoaka Performing Arts Center Summer program in Maine.
As the Executive and Artistic Director of the Sands Theater Center from 2006-2009, Jeffrey was responsible for revamping a struggling Artistic program, bringing in guest directors from New York, Los Angeles and London, and bringing a record profit to the 2007-2008 Mainstage season.

During it’s three year run, 11 staged readings and 17 original plays were produced. Authors traveled from around the United States to participate in the event, which led to three authors receiving full productions of their developed works and one being published by the Dramatic Publishing Company. Two others were developed into screenplays.
