Hello, my name is Jess. For the past twelve years, I have practiced design, art direction, creative direction, and management in a wide array of industries: advertising, publishing, entertainment, and technology. I’ve worked for companies large and small, with big budgets to no budget, from extremely organized to zero process. What I’ve enjoyed most along the way has been applying a creative lens to any challenge, and coming up with the “big ideas” - ideas that unite smart design with creative strategy to meet business objectives.
For the past two years I have been leading brand design and creative at Cloudflare, an Internet security and performance company in San Francisco. I manage a team of incredibly talented designers, and we work on design and creative that enables us to communicate Cloudflare’s mission to the world – the mission of helping build a better Internet.
I am originally from New York, and now live in Oakland, CA with my husband and two daughters.
