Welcome!

Jessie is a writer, photographer, journalist and editor. She resides in the wooded + lake filled wonderlands of Minnesota, and her work is inspired by the curious, simplistic and natural sides of life.

 

Writing. 

Jessie has always had an immense passion for storytelling in the form of written text. She has been scribbling book ideas down for decades and dreams of telling the stories of others’ lives someday. English class was the only core study that came natural to her, and she's convinced it's because her grandparents were both writers. She believes the craft of writing is a type of magic that runs through her veins. 

 

Photography.

An equal interest for Jessie is photography. She grew up around 35mm film methods and started developing her own black and white prints in her early teenage years. The modern photography world has brought her to meet countless fantastic people in wonderfully unique settings. Jessie carries minimal equipment and thinks of her camera as solely a tool to create, citing documentary and journalistic methods as her style of choice. Visuals, along with text is what she feels brings the most depth to the world when she shares stories.

 

Storytelling.

Although Jessie is mostly self-taught in the realms of editorial writing, photography, and website design, she holds a Bachelor of Science degree in journalism and geography, along with a minor in British Studies. Unique perspectives drive her to create in this world, and she loves learning, progressing, and seeing the world from other people’s perspectives to hold true appreciation for everything.

To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.
