Hi, I'm Jesse.
I work in technology, focusing on cryptocurrency and blockchain-based applications.
I grew up in and around New York City. I studied Art History and Economics at McGill University in Montreal.
While in school, I started a number of businesses aligned with my obsession with music. Web design, then flyers, parties, a tool for event management on Facebook, and then concerts, at a time when Montreal had a super special music scene.
Back in New York, I co-founded an artist management firm focused on using new platforms to help artists stay independent. I was privileged to work with people I consider generational talents, including Solange Knowles, Blood Orange, Majical Cloudz and many more. That team also helped launch Boiler Room in North America, where we pioneered live-streamed performances in 2012.
