After he was hired to be a student web developer at Purdue University in 1999, Jesse figured he should probably learn how to make a web page.
He checked out an educational VHS tape called “Learning HTML” from the public library, and 45 minutes later he was ready to start his new job!
He was significantly more qualified by the time he was hired by NewCity in 2016, having worked as a web developer for Purdue University, Virginia Tech, and a variety of small businesses and organizations. Today he builds sites of all sizes as a front-end developer and NewCity’s senior WordPress developer.
When he’s not writing code, Jesse finds inspiration in music. He sings as much as he can, both in his A Capella group and with the local musical theater organization. He studied to be an animator before moving into web development, and that interest has carried on as a love of animation, special effects, and the craft of filmmaking.
