In 1995, Kremer graduated from Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School. He received his A.S. in Professional Pilot Training from Fox Valley Technical College attended the Police Recruit Academy and firefighter training at Waukesha County Technical College and EMT training at Milwaukee Area Technical College. Kremer was a firefighter on the Germantown Fire Department and is still an EMT and firefighter on the Kewaskum Fire Department.

Kremer advocates Young Earth creationism and stated it as fact during a May 2017 Colleges and Universities Assembly committee hearing. PolitiFact called him out for falsely stating as a fact the age of the Earth at 6000 year, as opposed to stating that it was his belief,[4] leading to him being described as "a documented Christian extremist and an intellectually incompetent buffoon" by Michael Stone in his Progressive Secular Humanist blog on Patheos.[5]
