Jesse was born in Los Angeles, California on November 27, 1994.

He picked up his first camera at the age of 10 when he and his family were moving from Southern California to Northwest Arkansas. He decided on a side career as a photographer whilst still in high school, from which he graduated in the Summer of 2012.

After turning down an offer from the Art Institute of North Hollywood, he attended Northwest Arkansas Community college in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Shortly after, he enrolled in a film photography course and focused on film photography for the next two years. In 2014 he decided to buy his first digital SLR and from then on has focused on digital photography, with occasional film usage.

He is familiar with several types of film including: 35mm film, 120mm film, 620mm film, 4x5 pull apart film as well as 4x5 large format sheet film.

In May 2017, several of his photos were chosen to be published in the fifth issue of The New Territory Magazine.

Jesse currently resides in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
