Jessa (noun) – A fearless, sarcastic, non-monogamous Black femme learning, living and loving on Lënapehòkink land (Philadelphia, PA, USA) by way of Atlanta, GA, USA – as an independent creative including model, dancer, actor, vocalist, photographer/videographer, writer, public speaker, event coordinator and staunch advocate for Reproductive Justice, Human Rights, Environmental Justice, and Sexual and Mental Health. Best known as the vocalist in Philly's latest punk outfit, SOJI, her viral photo and commentary from the photo project Topless in New York, her role as Festival Director of Abortionpalooza, and her work with the BIPOC Adult Industry Collective, Jessa has been known to drink the blood of misogynists and will punish anyone in the name of the Moon!
As a writer, her style has been heavily influenced by the prose of Toni Morrison, Miranda July, Charles Bukowski, Anaïs Nin and Alex Elle. Tiny and powerful, Jessa swapped climbing trees in her youth for climbing poles in her 20’s and is usually found dancing to equal parts Kidneythieves and FKA Twigs on any given night but especially at any Siren Pack productions in Philadelphia and beyond! Published in the likes of Shout Your Abortion, HUSTLER Magazine, NASTY Vol. 2, and SubvrtMag, Jessa is now working a pilot script for her first sitcom, and a memoir.
