Hey I'm Jesse. I shoot commercials for a wide range of clients and
really value people who appreciate beautiful images. Also, there's
a part of me that's geeky (tech=yes, gaming=yes, lotr=yes, math=no)
and a part of me that's sporty (climbing=yes, swimming=yes,
wingsuit flying=maybe in my next life).
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Creative Director/Founder of an agency in Oakland. We've
created commercials for Google, Yahoo, Indochino, and other brands.

You're driven, and appreciate the beautiful things all around us.
