Jesse is a producer, songwriter, film and TV composer, sound designer, and multi-instrumentalist living and working in Chicago. He fuses his background in hip-hop/rock production and improvisational underscoring to make unique music for pretty much every type of media.

He was the resident musical director of the Second City Mainstage and the neighboring e.t.c. stage, where he co-created five revues, all Jeff-Nominated. During that time he also co-wrote, composed, arranged, and musical-directed the unprecedented hit show “The Second City Guide to the Opera” at Lyric Opera of Chicago, and its recent follow-up “Louder! Longer! Wagner!” - in which he also starred as the titular composer.

He’s produced albums and composed for a wide variety of short films, pilots, theatrical productions, internet videos, documentaries, podcasts, and a vast, ever-increasing portfolio of content for Second City Works. He’s performed with classical musicians, jazz trios, and produced radio-ready beats and rock/pop tracks for artists and comedians alike.

He writes, composes, arranges, records, mixes, and masters at his studio on industry-standard equipment. He’s a member of the American Federation of Musicians Local 10-208 and ASCAP.
