I am from Massachusetts and now live in Europe (Barcelona), and The Bay Area.

I have been a computer consultant for the past 20 years. I wrote my first newspaper column and built my first website when I was 14. I now blog for HuffPost and have gone on assignment for National Geographic (I'll blog for you too, contact me).

I am also the president of Curry Without Worry, a Bay Area non-profit that serves the food-insecure featured in The New York Times. I am a distance learning student at UMass Amherst and featured on the school's website.I have built UI/UX for hundreds of clients, and managed teams of up to 10 on comprehensive web development projects.

I love to write and communicate ideas. I research and get the energy going around new ideas. As they form, I help visualize and bring them to fruition with content creation (writing, web development, and social networking).

I quickly come up with conceptual, as I especially like the ideation phase, whether writing or wireframe. I also am an active project manager of more advanced developers.

I am a people person. I love technical support, getting teams together, brainstorming, and growing ideas. I have built and managed teams of 15 and acted as a project manager using Agile Development method tools like Asana, JIRA, Pivotal, and version control.

I have extensive experience working with remote teams and am always on time with my deliverables and online meetings.

"This space intentionally left blank" is one of my favorite ironies in publishing.

Stand Up Comedy in 2018

A recent client testimonial : My company hired Jesse to help with the front-end design and user interface of our new SaaS platform for the financial crime compliance industry. Jesse was not only able to deliver the project on schedule and budget, but he was also able to meet all of our strict specifications, such as ensuring that the design was older browser compatible (a must for our product). I look forward to working with Jesse on any future projects.
