In high school, Jeremy Chin failed his final Malay language paper, a mandatory subject to graduate. He retook the paper and passed. In his early college years, Chin took a keen interest to the socialist model and was known on campus as the young Marxist. In May of 1998, Chin graduated with a Bachelor of Journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia, one of the world’s most prestigious journalism schools. His life took quite a different path afterwards, when he moved west with a friend to California.
In April of 1999, Chin moved to Los Angeles to work as a web designer. He developed e-commerce websites for the largest studios in Hollywood and built web portals for numerous Fortune 500 clients. Three years into the job, he discovered a new passion and delved into the world of computer programming.
Chin moved to London in February of 2005 and remained there for two years. He worked as a web programmer, first at a dot com in Chelsea, and then at a mid-sized advertising agency in central London. Chin returned to Malaysia after his stint in London, and assumed a position at an online marketing agency, as their Creative Director. He relinquished his position two years later to write FUEL.
