Jared Mezzocchi received his MFA in Performance and Interactive Media Arts at Brooklyn College. He is currently on faculty at University of Maryland, College Park, where he leads the projection design track in the MFA Design program. He is a resident artist at Woolly Mammoth Theater Company in DC and has directed and/or designed at theaters across the U.S. and in Europe including designing for Big Art Group, The Builders Association, Rob Roth, 3-Legged Dog, HEREarts Center, and UTC #61. Jared made his off-broadway debut at Manhattan Theatre Club with his projection design in VIETGONE, written by Qui Nguyen and directed by May Adrales. In 2012 he received the prestigious Princess Grace Award, the first projection designer to be honored with this national theater award. In 2017, he received the first Lucille Lortel Award for the category of Outstanding Projection design (Vietgone, Manhattan Theater Club). Alongside the Lucille Lortel, Mezzocchi was also a recipient of a 2017 Obie Award, and 2017 nominee for an Outer Critics Circle Award and a Drama Desk Award.

In Spring 2017, Mezzocchi was accepted as a fellow to the MacDowell Colony. 

Mezzocchi grew up in Hollis, NH, where his mother still lives and where he will make his summer home as Producing Artistic Director of Andy's Summer Playhouse. His production of The Lost World, written originally for Andy’s, won Best Original Play in the NHTA Awards and just received its DC premiere at University of Maryland in 2015.
