About Jesse

I'm a journalist, producer, and comedian and I've done (nearly) all the jobs in podcasting and audio including producer, editor, executive producer, reporter, mix engineer, and teacher. 
I've worked with WBEZ's Curious City and Motive, and prior to that Backstory and This American Life. I'm mostly an editor and senior producer these days, but I think like a producer. I'd love to work with you to help you realize your vision.
