I'm Jesse.

a freelance Product Designer / Developer
currently in    Portland, OR.

About Me

I grew up in beautiful upstate New York in a small town with one stoplight. I stayed in the Northeast for college studying math at Tufts University and University of Rochester. Then I packed up my car and drove across the country out to equally as beautiful Portland, Oregon.

Okay, I skipped over some parts but that’s for another time.

I have always been fascinated by and try to live in the intersection of science and art, intuition and data, to create work that matters and stands out.


"I've brought Jesse on to countless projects over the last 4 years and he is utterly consistent in displaying professionalism, attention to detail and stellar communication. Not only is he talented, but he is a pleasure to work with - especially considering how rare it is to find a developer who is reliable and goes above and beyond the way Jesse does!"
-Rachel Hinman
"...He was able to take direction and ownership of projects, and his relentless dedication to detail made his work stand out. I would recommend Jesse to any organization and can say with confidence that he'll immediately provide value. Jesse takes pride in his work and his skills as an entrepreneur are invaluable in a climate where agility, innovation, and project ownership are key."
