Hi! I’m Jessie. I like to make things with people.

 

That mostly looks like acting and writing. Sometimes I sing. Sometimes I choreograph. I’m a big ideas person; it’s all connected, y’know?

 

I studied in a tightly-knit ensemble in Chicago, where I trained in Shakespeare, the Patsy Rodenburg method, movement, and acting in the legacy of Michael Howard. After wrapping up my time in Chicago with continued study in Shakespeare and Chekhov, I packed my bags and headed west to Los Angeles. 

 

My work has taken me to film festivals, off-Broadway, international theater expos, Zoom rooms, cornfields, and strangers' apartments - all via many, many airplanes. 

 

I don’t think there’s anything more interesting than figuring out how something works, especially if that thing is a human being.
