Jenkins was heralded as one of TIME magazine's "Most Influential People" of 2017 and Fast Company's "Most Creative People" of the same year. Born and raised in Miami, Florida, he graduated from Florida State University with a BFA in film. Currently based in Los Angeles, Jenkins also serves as a curator at the Telluride Film Festival and a United States Artists Smith Fellow.
