As a passion and occasional paid-basis, Jesse is an actor, writer, director, and a producer of independent films, theater, and video projects.

Jesse’s primary fascination is the performing arts. He wants to make good bolder in the field of entertainment. He aims to do that by exploring new ideas, enhancing collaboration and cooperation with teams, and working in his unique ability, which is enthusiasm.

In his twenties, he was a professional musical theater performer traveling the United States while running his businesses. He also had a brief stint as the manager of an aerial acrobatics group as well as the production manager for a prominent regional theater that launches new Broadway shows.

(He found out that he would much prefer to be in the shows, rather than acting as travel agent.)

He has directed, choreographed and performed in a variety of capacities and started an improv comedy troupe called Crackpot Comedy, where he teaches people right off the street how to explore their improvisational muse and get on the stage to perform.
