I’m Jess: an director/playwright/text-coach/occasional actor/committed optimist.

Jess is an emerging regional director with a deep love for language. She is working in far-flung places that include Chicago, Los Angeles, Montana and Minnesota. She writes sporadically but feverishly: lists, plays, essays, the occasional poem and one children’s book.
