My name is Jessica, but many refer to me as Jessie because Jessica has one too many syllables. I am a Native New Yorker who returned to the Empire State in 2016 to further my education, and pursue my creative interests in photography and videography.

In 2014, I graduated from Florida Atlantic University with my B.A. in Multimedia Studies: Film & Video, and in 2018, I graduated from The New School with my M.A. in Media Studies. I currently work as a freelancer and serve as the Creative Director at The Gathering Harlem, a new church planted in Harlem, NY.

I once heard Emily Weiss, founder of Glossier, say: “It’s not always about what’s new - it’s about what’s best.”

I believe that this statement summarizes the purpose of this space. I created my website because I love sharing advice on a variety of topics: mental health, beauty, fashion, faith - you name it. I’d also love to hear what you have to say, so don’t hesitate to shoot me a message!
