After he matriculated from a high school located in his hometown, he enrolled at Boston University, and in 1999 he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in fine arts in the field of graphic design. Spiewak then moved to New York to find better career options for his profession.
In New York, Spiewak started working as an advertisement designer for several big companies, including Kitchen Aid, Barnes and Nobles, The American Express and The New York Times.
However, Spiewak subsequently changed his career path to become a movie producer.
He first started as an executive producer for a 2017 documentary about four patients who underwent special treatment for their conditions, called “First in Human: The Trials of Building 10”. That same year, he was an executive producer of the TV movie “The Family Gene”.
In late 2017, Spiewak gained worldwide recognition as an executive producer of a series about the childhood of his husband’s character, “Young Sheldon”. He remained the producer of all of the show’s episodes, and as of April 2020, he is still working on the same series.
In 2018 Spiewak produced the family drama called “A Kid Like Jake”, and the next year he also produced eight episodes of the TV series “Special”.
At the same time, he was a producer of TV shows such as “Last Chance Hospital” and “The Monarchy is Going to Sh*t”.
Marriage to Jim Parson
Spiewak met Jim Parsons in 2002 at a New York karaoke bar, and the two instantly felt a spark.
Jim Parsons is the famous actor who is most known for his portrayal of Sheldon Cooper in the CBS TV sitcom “The Big Bang Theory”, and could also be seen in movies such as “A Kid Like Jake” – which was produced by Spiewak – “Hidden Figures” and “Visions”. Parsons has also won four Primetime Emmy Awards and one Golden Globe Award.
Despite starting their relationship just a few weeks after their meeting in 2002, the couple wasn’t seen together in public until 2013, when they attended the 9th annual GLSEN Respect Awards, held in the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, California. During this event, the duo won an Inspiration Award for being the business-savvy couple of the year. They have also won a Bravo Otto – Hot Couple Award, for being amongst the best-looking couples in the entertainment industry. The news of the two dating for years came as a surprise to Parsons fan base, and the media across the world. Most people don’t know that Parsons gave Spiewak a shout out during the Emmy Award ceremony in 2010, but no one present suspected a thing.
The couple married on 13th May 2017, after 15 years of dating, in a ceremony held at Rainbow Room, the legendary rooftop cocktail lounge located in New York City.
Parsons has several times named his husband as his ‘favorite individual in the world’.
Sometime after their marriage, the couple stated that they are considering finding a surrogate mother for their first child. This came as a surprise to the public, as Parsons has always claimed that he doesn’t want the responsibility of having to take care of a baby. However, in time he’s apparently changed his mind, and supported his husband’s wishes to have a family.
Spiewak and his husband have created a production company named That’s Wonderful Productions, LLC.
The couple owns two dogs, a Maltese and a Shih Tzu.
Unsurprisingly both Spiewak and Parsons are huge advocates for LGBT rights, and have become one of the trademarks of the gay community, especially in New York where they spend most of their time. However, the couple has stated numerous times that they are simply two persons who are in love, and that they don’t want to encourage others to become gays, nor to be known only as a gay couple.
Spiewak does his best to keep his life private and away from the media. However, Parsons has discovered in a speech that Mr. and Mrs Spiewak are present in their lives and that they are rather supportive of their relationship and life choices.
He is not a fan of social media and doesn’t own any public accounts. His husband, however, is rather popular on Instagram, where he has around seven million followers, and often posts pictures of his husband and their dogs.
Spiewak has excelled in his career paths, and this helped him earned a little fortune.
As a graphic designer, his annual salary was estimated at being somewhere between $93,446 and $143,516. His net worth is estimated at around $7 million – which is impressive, but a lot less than his husband makes, as Parsons’ net worth is reputedly more than $80 million.
Spiewak and Parsons share a home in a part of the New York City that is entitled Gramercy Park. In 2011, they have purchased a penthouse in Manhattan, New York, for a price of $1.822 million. The next year, they bought another apartment in the same neighborhood, and this one was even more expensive, at a whopping $2.825 million.
The couple has sold one of their properties in 2019, and from this sale alone they have earned $6.95 million. The house had 3.5 bathrooms and three bedrooms and its asking price was $8.995 million!
Spiewak and Parsons also share several luxury cars, such as a Ford Mustang that has a base value of $25,000 and a Mercedes Benz that has a base value of $149,000.
Spiewak is a handsome man with a slim body, black hair and deep brown eyes. He hasn’t disclosed his exact height or weight, but judging from the photos he is just a little bit shorter than his husband who is 6 ft 1 ins (1.86 m) tall.
