About Me

Jesse is a writer, artist, producer, and poet...

who carries his poetry like an end of times sign, but lives life like it's the greatest adventure. 

In 2017, he entered the Australian Poetry Slam, battling his words through multiple state and national heats to take home the Adult Championship.

In 2018, Jesse toured his poetry around Australia appearing on platforms such as TedxPerth and the Byron Bay Writers Festival. He then launched internationally with the Ubud Readers and Writers Festival, the Singapore Writers Festival and the Hong Kong International Literary Festival.

 

Jesse's 2018 rap/poetry theatre production, Star-Crossed Poetry, sold out across it's six show FRINGEWORLD season.

In 2019, Jesse's obsession with community based arts led him into the world of production and leadership. Here, Jesse programmed engagement events for the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, and held the role of Creative Co-Director with the National Young Writers' Festival.

In 2020, Jesse made the jump from Perth to Melbourne - as well as from the stage to the screen. Jesse has performed with two national campaigns, with one as leading talent. He returns to the National Young Writers Festival as Festival Co-Manger and produces creative programs for young writers with Express Media, resident org of the Wheeler Centre. 

Jesse still writes and creates for a revolution of love and understanding - for a future with zero tolerance of inequality. He delivers a sincere and rhythmic style to break down complicated issues. Jesse’s work finds a way to highlight the strength in vulnerability, drawing from - and sometimes exploring - his lived experiences of homelessness, gender diversity and mental illness.
