About Skeeterbuggins Productions

Skeeterbuggins Productions was founded in 2006 by Jarod Breshears. The name of Skeeterbuggins came about from my father, who used to call me his Skeeter Bug when I was a baby. He has since passed away and I have found it to be a fitting tribute to his legacy to have my company be named Skeeterbuggins. Here is a video that summarizes what Skeeterbuggins Productions has to offer:

As for myself, I am a graduate of the University of Idaho in Moscow, Idaho with a Bachelor's in Radio/TV/Digital Media Production and Music: Composition and a Master's degree in Multimedia Communications from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California. I have worked for the University of Idaho, Washington State University, Root Sports Northwest, Fox Sports Net, ESPN, Spokane Shock, PlayOn Sports!, Versus (Now NBC Sports Network), Comcast Oregon and Yahoo! Wanderlust.
