Relocating to Los Angeles in 1996, Jerry spent 10 years working in film and television, running his boutique editing studio Nitestar Productions at Hollywood's famous Crossroads of the World. While in Los Angeles, Jerry’s work included editing DVD featurettes produced by Trailer Park for Universal Home Entertainment and Fox Atomic, 10 segments of the series "Breaking In" produced for the Reelz Channel and co-producing / editorial duties on 23 episodes of the weekly syndicated series "Made in Hollywood". Jerry also edited "Now You Know", the romantic comedy written and directed by "Clerks" star Jeff Anderson. "Now You Know" earned accolades in the San Diego, IFP Chicago, Greenwich and Big Bear Film Festivals. Jerry also worked on several projects with the late great television luminary Richard Hatch, of "Battlestar Galactica" fame.
Jerry's projects aren't limited to only media. To overcome mobility challenges he faced using his cane and crutches, Jerry teamed up with his father Anastasios to invent the SandPad LandPad All Terrain Stabilizer, the only patented crutch and cane tip accessory that provides maximum stability on sand, grass, mud, snow, as well as regular paved surfaces. The SandPad earned accolades as a finalist in the 2018 Chicago Innovation Awards and is also available for sale online at Amazon and Walmart.
As an advocate and mentor to emerging filmmakers, Jerry presently serves as Chicago City Producer of the world renowned 48 Hour Film Project while also developing projects for his company Nitestar Productions in Chicago.
