About Jesse

An Emmy Award-winning, Brooklyn-based Post Producer, Editor, Photographer and DP, Jesse's decade's long reputation is anchored by an acute attention to detail and deadline conscious workflow. He's meticulously honed his craft via his experience shooting music videos, editing documentaries, producing primetime broadcast programming, and everything in between.

Dedication to the product, the vision, and elevating his team, Jesse's as comfortable orchestrating a smoothly run Post department, as he is behind the keyboard or camera. He's proudest of always bringing more to a project and work environment than what's asked of him.
