Jesse Alkire

A duel-threat as both a writer and art director, Jesse has evolved into one of the most well-rounded creatives in advertising today, working with some of the biggest brands in beer to craft everything from national broadcast campaigns to digital video, and everything in between. Jesse's creativity also extends outside of advertising, where he is an accomplished smartphone photographer, having most recently taking first prize at the 2015 IPPAwards, while his work in professional sports design has generated millions of hits on sites like Bleacher Report and Yahoo! Sports. Raised in southern Missouri, Jesse grew up just outside Denver, Colorado. Currently he lives in Chicago, Illinois with his wife and daughter, where he spends half the year bathing in the tears of Cubs fans and the other half wishing he still lived in Colorado.
