Self-proclaimed ‘Famous New Media Artist’, Jeremy Bailey is a podcaster, venture socialist and the Head of Experience at FreshBooks. He believes that technology, creatively misused, empowers us all to be famous.

Bailey has performed and exhibited in several solo and group exhibitions, including I Was Raised on the Internet, MCA Chicago (2018); The New Art Fest, National Museum of Contemporary Art, Lisbon (2018); FUTURE SHOP_A POP-UP STORE, Seoul Mediacity Biennial (2018); possible selves: queer foto vernaculars, Williams College Museum of Art, Williamstown, US (2018); Smoke Test, The Moving Museum, London (2017); World Building, Trinity Square Video, Toronto (2017); Next Big Thing, Pari Nadimi Gallery, Toronto (2016); and Electronic Superhighway, Whitechapel Gallery, London (2016).

Bailey has received numerous awards, including the Prix DeVarti, Ann Arbor Film Festival, US (2009); Best of Show, Everson Biennial, Everson Museum, Syracuse, US (2006) and Dorothy Shaffer Fellowship Award, Syracuse (2005). He has participated in residencies at The Moving Museum, Istanbul (2014); Quartier21 Artists-in-Residence, MuseumsQuartier, Vienna (2013); and FACT, Liverpool, UK (2012).

At FreshBooks, Bailey leads experienced design teams that help self-employed professionals thrive, while Goodpoint, his imperfect podcast collaboration with artist Rafael Rozendaal, has helped thousands of creative listeners. Lean Artist, founded by Bailey in 2016, is an artist accelerator that helps artists design and launch startups that challenge convention to make the world a better place.

Bailey holds an MFA in Art Media Studies from Syracuse University, US (2006). He was born in 1979 in Toronto, where he continues to live and work.
