Analyze. Organize. Optimize.

Hi, I’m Jesse.

I’m passionate about free speech, FOSS, and the open web. I believe these concepts are critical to maintaining an internet that is useful to everyone (and I believe it should be) — just as physical health is requisite to achieving anything else in in the real world.

I have a few online projects related to web hosting and SEO, and a few others that organize information and encourage transparency in certain industries. (Sometimes, I even make money.)

You can hire me if you are looking for critical analysis, OSINT (ethical) research, or DevOps consulting. Disclaimer: I’m not a licensed medical, financial, or legal professional, so there’s that.

I offer some fixed-price consulting services for companies looking to optimize their WordPress stack. I have worked with all kinds of clients over the years including churches, lawyers, gay bars, IT firms, and everything in between, so don’t be shy…

One of my greatest passions is the natural environment. Not in the “global warming” sort of way, but in the “let’s agree that pollution is bad and avoidable, animals deserve humane treatment, and in the end we only have one Earth so let’s take care of it” sort of way. When I have a bit of spare time, I also like to volunteer with anti-human trafficking efforts and missing persons cases.

I believe the attributes that set humans apart among species are empathy and reason; I think the “right” needs more compassion, and the “left” needs more logic. I’m intrigued by radical centrism, but also skeptical of the Western obsession with labeling things.

I provide free technical consulting and web hosting (in confidence) to activists or journalists (of any political flavor) who are trying to expose fraud, corruption, or censorship.

Most of the time, I’m doing technical SEO and website optimization for WordPress clients around the world.

Thanks for stopping by —
