Jeremy Lee Sanchez

Brooklyn, NY

Jeremy was born and raised in New York City. He attended a school for the Deaf then later transitioned to a mainstream setting. As a teenager he joined and performed with the ASL Slam team for five years. His involvement there taught him how to present and ultimately express American Sign Language to an audience as an art. 

His interest in language continued to guide his learning experience, leading him to the platform of social media. Jeremy established an Instagram account that included ASL storytelling. The positive impact of the stories posted were evident after receiving growing attention on the page. The success was favorable and, perhaps he should have been satisfied with just that, yet, in turn, it fueled his desire to share his passion through that of business. 

This is when ASL NYC and ASL Elements were born. Both businesses now operate in D.U.M.B.O, Brooklyn. The space welcomes deaf, hearing, and hard of hearing students who are interested in expression through ASL and learning the language as a purely visual form of communication.
