Hi, I'm Jesse :}

I’m a product designer happily living in San Francisco, CA. I am currently a Design Lead at Airbnb, previously Creative Director at DigitalOcean, leading the product design & brand design teams. While a happy, well-functioning team is mission-critical, much of my focus is spent thinking through design systems, designing interfaces, and coding deep into the night.

Jesse's interests

  • Dogs & such

    Few things bring me such joy as animals do, sadly I don't own a pet.
  • Philly

    & South Jersey - a place my family and I will always call home.
  • Espresso

    My loyalty lies with Philly-roasted La Colombe. My daily jam: Americano
  • Barbeque

    I've taken road trips dedicated to barbeque, aptly named: BBQ tours
  • Diving

    Living & diving in the caribbean created a love for the underwater.
  • Outdoor Exploration

    While theres always a time for R&R, I prefer outdoor exploration.
  • Gummy Candy

    I realize its a problem, but they make me happy, okay?
