Jessica is a prolific filmmaker who is comfortable working with a wide variety of genres, from documentary shorts and features to episodic television and commercial spots. Evident in all of Jessica’s work is her remarkable ability to depict both the serious and the light-hearted—in other words, the whole of the human experience.

Additionally, her light-hearted shorts, “Sour Death Balls,” “The Conductor,” “The Kinda Sutra” and “Mr. Toilet” were all featured at the Sundance Film Festival. Jessica also directed the touching shorts “The Guide,” which documents a young man’s journey from Mozambique as he learns to care for a protected environment, and “Hands,” a short film created for General Electric as part of Sundance’s Focus Forward campaign.

On the narrative side, Jessica is also a well-respected director of episodic television. She began her career in television by directing several episodes of The West Wing, Grey’s Anatomy and ER, and is currently directing episodes of Scandal, Parenthood and other popular programs. Additionally, her independent comedy feature Ping Pong Playa premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. In the commercial world, Jessica has helmed work for Ford, General Electric, Secret, BP, MasterCard, Microsoft and JetBlue.

As a filmmaker and a commercial director, Jessica always goes for the authentic - capturing characters and stories that illuminate the human condition.
