I’m a New York City-based Producer, originally hailing from Milwaukee. I’ve been producing and supervising branded content, films, and music videos for five years.

As a Producer in a digital content world, I wear a lot of hats, including ascots, bowlers, and the occasional baseball cap. But I also take on many roles like Line Producer, Lead Agency Producer, Post Producer, Account Manager, and Project Manager of cross-functional teams for innovative technology projects. I’ve produced branded and non-branded documentaries, social campaign videos, photoshoots, web-series pilots, podcasts, AR applications & Snapchat Lenses, VR & 360 videos, product and book promos, educational videos, animations, and more.

Brands I’ve worked with: Adidas, Audible, Beats, Facebook & Oculus, Foot Locker, Royal Caribbean, Mountain Dew, Jägermeister, NYULH, Jet.com, and TIAA.

Outside of commercial work, I am producing a 7-year long documentary about a 12-year-old girl who has dreams of becoming an Olympic Boxer. See more about the film here: https://www.jesszillathefilm.com/

When I’m not working, I’m playing soccer and brewing beer. I’m the brewmaster at Firstborn and try to keep the office stocked with quality suds. I’m also the VP of NYC largest homebrew club, the Brewminaries.
