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. Unique perspectives are her favorite and she has a love for both urban settings and earthy landscapes.
Jessie grew up around 35mm photography 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. Her photographs tell a story where people do not always think there is one to tell.
In addition to photography, Jessie has always had an immense passion for writing. She has been scribbling book ideas down for decades and tends to always know where an investigative story is waiting to be discovered. Jessie's main passion is storytelling, and she loves nothing more than sharing someone's authenticity through both visuals and/or words.
Although Jessie is mostly self-taught, she has a background in journalism and editorial writing, social media managing and website design. Her educational background includes studies in journalism, geography and British Studies. Jessie resides in Minnesota and is influenced by the abundant nature and wildlife of the region.
Storytelling through any medium attracts Jessie's interest, and that is what she feels she is here to do: Become a storyteller.
