Jesse can’t remember a home that didn’t have a trapeze hanging in the backyard, but can remember plenty of bath times in the sinks of circus caravans as a baby.

“Circus has been my whole life. I have never had to look outside of it because it continues to evolve and that excites me so much. I was lucky to have world class performers who trained me. I got to tour the world at a really young age and was exposed to many amazing people and amazing art and culture.”

Jesse spent 11 years training and touring under the watchful eye of some of the world’s greatest circus trainers at The Flying Fruit Fly Circus, Australia’s premier Youth Circus.

He went on to work with companies including Legs on the Wall, A4 Circus Ensemble, Candy Stripe Circus and The Australian Opera, before becoming a full time ensemble member with Circa, one of Australia’s leading contemporary Circus Companies. Jesse was an integral part in the creation of several successful Circa shows and spent three years touring internationally with Circa, performing at some of the world’s most prestigious venues.

A Casus co-founder, Jesse loves that Casus “gives a human face to circus, we don’t hide anything, we make it true – this is our world.”

When he is not performing or training Jesse is involved in teaching and directing, passing on his love of circus to people of all ages.
