For his paid work, Jesse is a critical care nurse. Much to the dismay of his ever-patient (and infinitely more successful) wife, Jesse likes to use his “spare” time doing “volunteer” work in the form of conference organising, co-producing free, open-access healthcare simulation podcast Simulcast, producing nursing practice development blog and podcast Injectable Orange, and all manner of other healthcare, research and education pseudo-academic activities. An exercise science graduate, sport and functional fitness tragic, Jesse classes himself a lifelong student of teaching, learning, health and human performance. Jesse’s proudest roles are head cheerleader for his wife, and their near-adult daughter, and best friend and co-navigator of life to his young son living with autism and ADHD.
