This is the journal of a professional chancer.

Jesse Collins is a lifelong dilettante with a focus spanning theatre, television and the web. He is a multi-faceted storyteller specializing in dramatic narrative and creative direction.

As a marketing professional, he delivers both digital and theatrical experiences. Serving as the Artistic Director at the Orillia Opera House for the past decade, he has directed dozens of sold-out comedies.

For television, he garnered a Best Direction Daytime EMMY Award nomination for Zoboofamoo on PBS. For many years, he has been one of Toronto’s busiest voice-over artists, voicing hundreds of ads including dozens for ten years as the voice of a major national bank. For nearly four decades, he has owned and operated Moxy Productions Incorporated in Toronto, Canada.

He collects old boats and outboards. If you’re selling, he’s buying.

“The best is yet to come.”

Carolyn Leigh

Broadway lyricist, 1959
