about me, your way

Pick a voice, and I'll tell you all about myself.


or skip to the boring stuff

about me, your way: young

hi! my name’s jessi.
i’m 30 years old, i wear glasses, and i love making up the best words to go with other peoples’ pictures. (sometimes i even make pictures, too!)

i like to find just the right way to say something to make people laugh, smile or learn something interesting. my number one favorite way to work is the buddy system—everything’s more fun when you do it together, even grown-up jobs.


about me, your way: snarky

Are you looking for a professional spitballer? Idea guy?
I talk fast, think faster, raise the average IQ of every meeting I walk into and work best on a deadline.

Bullshit is an art form, but cutting through it is, too. I know how to hack a convoluted messaging strategy into the sharpest, clearest, shortest lines possible, because I know copywriting is at least 90% delete key and I fear nothing.

I survived design school and all I got was therapy bills, immediately hired for job in my field, and a total lack of regard for my own sleep schedule. Let's make a deal.


about me, your way: writerly

As a writer & designer, human activity, relationships, and connections enthrall me—this fixation is what compels me to write, and constantly work to facilitate effective and meaningful communication.

I love collaboration. Anything one brain could do, we can do together with more complexity and more joy. My favorite thing is feeling a concept winding in the air between people and refining it into something functional, useful, and important.

We as culture-makers have the privilege and responsibility of defining the expectations, inventing the language, and setting the syntax… and I'm so excited to be part of the dialogue.


about me, your way: imagistic

roses are red, violets are blue,
someday i'll have time to write this one, too!


about me, your way: technical

roses are red, violets are blue,
someday i'll have time to write this one, too!


about me, your way: heartfelt

roses are red, violets are blue,
someday i'll have time to write this one, too!


about me, your way: clean

roses are red, violets are blue,
someday i'll have time to write this one, too!

really "about"

I'm a simple machine for turning iced tea into dance moves.

I also knit, I'm learning how to play hockey, and I compete on a synchronized figure skating team.*

My partner and I live in an old Kansas City shirtwaist house with our two cats, whom we love enough not to have named after typefaces, even though I kinda wanted to.

*FAQ: Yup, figure skating on ice. Yes, it's a real sport, and you're right, it absolutely SHOULD be in the Olympics; it's WAY cooler than curling (no offense to curling). And hell yes we fall down sometimes—but most importantly of all, we get back up.
