Hi, I'm Jess!

Welcome... ♡

On this page I’d like to give you a quick little dive into who I am and what I love. I’m an American student Living in London for the Web Design and Content Planning, MA program at the University of Greenwich. I come from a quaint little town in Norfolk, Massachusetts, not too far from the heart of Boston.

Professionally, I’ve been working in Human Resources for the past four years but felt a desire to do something more creative with my life. I am now on this grand adventure to become a Web Designer. The web design field is the perfect mix of artistic creativity and technical skills that I’ve been craving and will keep me loving what I do. I look forward to learning and growing in this career and seeing where this path will take me.

❀ My Interests ❀

Diving Into History

I love learning about England’s fascinatingly rich history, which is why I chose to move to London as a full-time student instead of staying in the US for my studies. My curiosities lean towards the Tudor dynasty, such as King Henry VIII and his wives, Queen Mary I, and Queen Elizabeth I. I plan to take this year to go on a personal pilgrimage to historical sites connected to that time period, which include the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, and the city of York to learn more about their lives and reigns.

Theater Enthusiast

When I was five years old my grandmother took me to the theater production of Cats. From that moment on I’ve been addicted to shows. Now as a seasoned theater-lover I’m drawn towards productions such as Wicked, Hamilton, Les Misérables, and Six. To me, there’s nothing more exhilarating than sitting in a beautiful theater, encompassed by extravagant design and history, while watching masterful talent perform their craft.

Rocker at Heart

I love music, the way it can make you feel a specific emotion, both inflict and heal you from pain, and entice you to get up and move. I enjoy many types of music, such as theater and pop, but the one that triumphs over all the rest is the rock genre. I enjoy the classics, like Queen, Fleetwood Mac, and Nirvana, as well as the more hardcore variety, like my favorite bands Seether, System of a Down, Disturbed, and Evanescence. Although these 6bands may have a darker sound, my enjoyment of them brings me inspiration, encouragement, and happiness.

Dog Lover

Who doesn’t like dogs? They’re cute, cuddly, and there for you when you need them. I have a family dog back home named Moose, who I miss very much. He is a two-year-old Goldendoodle and quite possibly my best friend, although I’m yet to hear him tell me so. His interests include playing fetch, running around outside, and cuddles. I feel lucky to have him in my life.
