About Jess

As a woman of color, Jess had to make her own way into screenwriting and directing in her hometown by self-producing a number of short films and one feature. She's dedicated to becoming a well-rounded African-American writer/director who focuses on character-driven narratives that will resonate with audiences of all demographics. "Gaining inclusivity does not then give you the right to exclude everyone else." Currently, Jess lives in Brooklyn, NY.

By night, she is constantly polishing a wide range of features and television pilots, as well as working on a stage musical with Jesse Murphy of NBC/Universal and Mike Squillante. By day, she is a digital mastermind at a full-service media agency. She specializes in search engine optimization.
