Jesse is a Michigan native who graduated cum laude from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. After working several years for an agency in Michigan, Jesse moved southward to Memphis, TN. Since joining the advertising industry in Memphis, he has won several awards locally and internationally. He brings a strong background in conceptual design and branding, as well as print material, signage, web design and video storyboards to the RedRover pack. Jesse has expertise with clients in many industries, including logistics, healthcare, education, banking/finance, tourism, realty and food service.
You could say that Jesse is a creative super hero. Not content to simply read comic books like other kids, he spent most of his free time growing up developing his own tales of heroes with villains to defeat and worlds to save. Once he discovered the magic land where creativity meets tech, he set off on his own journey to slay the challenges of digital design. News of his Photoshop prowess spread quickly and earned him the de facto role of designer of all things logos and t-shirts. As any super hero would, he took great pride in seeing his designs take on a life of their own as fashion statements for all his friends.
Jesse’s super hero level of passion and ambition has carried into his professional career. He considers himself fortunate to have collaborated with a variety of clients and creative professionals, many of whom he calls his friends and family. Although he doesn’t get to write many comic books these days, he still finds many rewards in wielding his graphic design skills to solve challenges in creative ways. He loves working on a broad spectrum of design including websites, logos, storyboards, brochures, posters, social media and more. Jesse’s favorite part of his career is helping a brand evolve from start to finish.
Aside from his career, he spends his time with his wife, Amanda, watching movies and exploring new restaurants. Their family consists of Toshi, an energetic Shiba Inu k9 and PeeWee, a lackadaisical cat. Jesse also spends time discovering new music, slaying virtual monsters and exploring new technology. It doesn’t matter if it’s a new game or app, you can bet he has not only heard of it but mastered it.
