The Korean Farmer Podcast Ep. 6: Jeremy Cowart - Artist, Photographer & Founder of The Purpose Hotel

This week, Chef Steven sits down with his longtime friend (and his wedding photographer!) Jeremy Cowart to discuss his new artwork, his new book, I'm Possible, and lots of exciting announcements about The Purpose Hotel. But first, Steven and Jeremy share a meal together - Mexican stir fry with cilantro lime cauli rice.


Named the “Most Influential Photographer on the Internet” by Huffington Post, Forbes and Yahoo in 2014, Jeremy Cowart is an award-winning photographer, artist, and entrepreneur whose mission in life is to "explore the intersection of creativity and empathy." Jeremy has published four books and is a sought-after speaker, having presented at TEDx, the United Nations and creative conferences across the country. 

His latest endeavor is The Purpose Hotel, a planned global for-profit hotel chain designed to fuel the work of not-for-profit organizations. He’s the founder of a global photography movement, Help-Portrait, a mobile social networking app called OKDOTHIS, and an online teaching platform, See University. He lives in Nashville, TN, with his wife and four children, two of whom are adopted from Haiti.

Jeremy’s new book, I’m Possible: Jumping Into Fear and Discovering a Life of Purpose, is now available everywhere. The book is based on Jeremy’s viral life story video that was released in 2015 and launched Jeremy’s speaking career where he has delivered this message to tens of thousands across America ever since. The book dives much deeper into all of the stories and projects Jeremy has done and ultimately encourages people of all ages to jump into fear in order to find their own purpose in life.
