I'm Jess, an art director, doodler and bloody mary connoisseur, originally from Washington, D.C. I started my creative career at a boutique design shop in Tel Aviv. Feeling as comfortable brainstorming in bustling hummus stalls as quiet office spaces, I quickly found that I love working internationally.
Once back stateside, I graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor's degree in Advertising and Design. I then made my way to the Big Apple where I landed a gig at Arnold NYC. That opportunity turned into three years of tremendous, client-facing experience working on global brands like Hershey's and Unilever.
I then decided to go global myself and backpack alone through Southeast Asia, where I ate lots of questionable street food and loved being immersed and inspired by the vibrant cultures in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Myanmar. Now I'm in Amsterdam, working at Dopper to save our oceans.
I am eligible to work in the EU.
