Head of Content

When mankind shot into cyberspace, we gained a lot. You can now get almost everything you ever wanted, instantly. It’s magical. But there’s also a lot of toxic tech out there and Jessica Pease believes it’s the leading cause of modern-living syndrome. MLS is that worn-out, irritable feeling you have at the end of a long day using sub-par apps. You can’t stop thinking “I thought life was supposed to be easier with computers in it.” Turns out, there’s no cure for MLS. But clean design, sweet information architecture, and kind words can be the metaphorical cup of hot tea. Jessica has brewed and served it in the interest of the common good at dot.com darlings, B2Bs and now PayPal. Her dad is really proud.
