Having worked in various projects and attending social events with the Starburners, he was later inducted into their ranks as their head writer, along with his persona 'Professor Lore'. His character evolved considerably from initial concept to final form, serving as the agents' 'Clandestine Liasion Officer' in the fictional world of the Starburner Galactic Courier Service.

Agent No. 14
Jeremiah Goodfollow aka Jeb Haught

Induction Date: July 20, 2013

​Dept. Equipment Design & Development

Writer, pennyfarthing enthusiast, gadgeteer

Jeb Haught is an avid San Diego Steampunk who makes props, sets up local Steampunk events, and rides a Penny Farthing. He started out wearing Steampunk outfits only to Steampunk events, but now it's the way he dresses for all events. Through the tutelage of Kim Hutsell, he has discovered an untapped source of creativity. Now he makes various Steampunk props and sells Steampunk accessories at a shop called Simply Local. He also belongs to a Penny Farthing club and joins others who dress up and ride around public areas promoting their unusual bicycles. Steampunk has enriched his life in more ways than he can count, and he enjoys spreading the word about not only the visual aesthetics of this stylish scene, but also the Victorian moral codes of chivalry and pride in workmanship.


His alternate ego, Jeremiah Goodfellow, is agent #14 of the Starburner Galactic Courier Service. His duties include equipment design and development, and he hopes to collaborate with other Starburners to invent futuristic gadgets and promote the group. Always the gentleman, Jeremiah is willing to go above and beyond the call to ensure the safety of fellow Starburners.  


Meet Agent #14 of The Starburner Galactic Courier Service. Jeb Haught talks about his origin in #Steampunk and shows me some of his finest ray guns.
