Working in the industry since 2003, Jessica had her start in animation at Spumco working on The New Ren and Stimpy. From there, she ventured to the East Coast and worked with Collideascope and Copernicus on various projects from music videos to television series. Soon after she created her own short film entitled I Like Pandas. This earned Jessica the “Frederator Flash Film of the Year Award”. Fuel Industries, an advertising-gaming agency, hired Jess in 2005. She art directed many projects there and worked with clients such as Kraft Foods, Johnson & Johnson, and McDonald’s, creating beautiful immersive online gaming. The popularity of her short film earned her notice from Warner Bros. She was approached by them to re-design the Looney Tunes, and from there went on to direct the “Merrie Melodies” part of the show. She also re-imagined Bugs and the gang again for the “Wabbit” series, which evolved into The New Looney Tunes Show. Jessica went on to work on many of the WB legacy properties. One DC Nation Short featuring Shazam entitled “WISDOM” that she produced was nominated for an Emmy. Jessica then imagined the book “Bunnicula” into an animated TV series and creatively produced it for Cartoon Network International. She currently works at Nickelodeon where she is Supervising Director on The Loud House.
