Performing traditional dance from a young age, Jesse graduated from the Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts (ACPA), Queensland in 2010 with an Advanced Diploma in Dance.

He secured a 6 month secondment with Expressions Dance Company, performing in works choreographed by Gina Rings and Natalie Weir.

Recently Jesse competed in the Dance Around the World solo competition hosted by the Australian Dance Festival, which he subsequently won, earning him a trip to Los Angeles.

In 2011 Jesse joined Leigh Warren and Dancers to perform in both Breathe choreographed by Frances Rings for WOMADelaide and Dreamscape choreographed by Leigh Warren for the OzAsia Festival. Jesse finished the year performing in First Ritual with Expressions Dance Company and Beijing LDTX for the Brisbane Festival.
