Hello.My name is Jesse von Doom. I think about rainbows, music, and the open web.

sometimes I draw raccoons, too.

Ever since making my first website 25 years ago, I've cared deeply about the web. It has the potential to connect us all. It's where we meet, read, learn, find the music that moves us, and even fall in love.

Over the years I've worked as a designer, creative director, engineer, and product manager. I've been lucky enough to see and shape the web from many different angles.

Notably, I spent a decade as Exective Director of CASH Music, an organization I helped found. The mission of artist sustainability on the web still drives me, even as I've doubled down around open web principles to build a more egalitarian web with access for all. I'm a fellow at the Shuttleworth Foundation, examining those very themes, and for the last two years I held the position of Digital Director at the Mozilla Foundation.

Now I'm looking for what's next. I'm not sure what it will be, but I'm excited to find out. Let's talk. Maybe we can find out together.
