Currently based in Berlin.
While her net casts widely, Jess specialises in brand strategy and music event production. Most notably, she co-founded an event agency ‘THIS’ in 2014 which, seemingly overnight, became one of the most successful independent party brands in Sydney. As an individual she was scouted by other event agencies to consulte on their own strategy and production.
Since moving to Berlin at the beginning of 2017, she has been increasingly focused on the tech sphere, working as a production and project manager for unicorn tech company Houzz, before moving work as a freelance project and technology consultant in 2019.
She is also a practicing musician, having played alto sax and piano for the majority of her life. She plays sax in the band Better Person. With Better Person she has played at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, supported John Maus at Funkhaus Berlin, supported Russian post-punk band Motorama on their tour of Germany, as well as other solo shows in Berlin and around Poland. They are currently recording an album.
In 2017 she played sax and synths in the Typewriter-Klangwelten performance at the annual Pop-Kultur Festival of Berlin and in 2018 she travelled to Sopot in Poland, to co-write and record for Polish musician Tomek Makowiecki’s forthcoming album.
