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 and led community engagement events for both local and national performing and visual arts organisations in senior positions with a focus on increasing meaningful engagement with youth, queer and CALD groups.


He currently resides in Perth, Australia, supporting local arts organisations develop governance and resilience for the future of the arts, and still performs his work locally, nationally and internationally.

Jesse writes and creates poetry in the theme of love and understanding - for a future with zero tolerance of inequality grown from his passion of community based arts. He delivers a sincere, down-to-earth and rhythmic style to break down complicated issues and connect with his audience. Jesse’s work finds a way to highlight the strength in vulnerability, drawing from - and sometimes exploring - his lived experiences of homelessness, mental illness, and transgender and queer identity.
