SERIES 2 | EP 5 | JESSE SIMON
Over twenty years Jesse Simon built a MASSIVE career managing the careers of some of the biggest models in fashion including David Friend, Ethan James and Gabriette Bechtel via the leading magazines and fashion houses, including YSL, Dior, Dazed, i-D and Vogue. Considered one of the most innovative talent agents Jesse built a reputation at Ford Models LA for seeing that the future was in killer brand strategy and by redefining the terms of what ‘talent’ truly means. Then, two years ago, he jacked it all in to officially transform Other People’s Children, the art collective he’d been co-running since 2017 as a side project into a living, breathing management company, representing a roster of musicians, writers, directors, and artist who are excited to help bring creative solutions to the table, in front of the camera as well as behind the scenes.
Recorded in his office, with the OPC team working around him, mere hours before our plane back to London was due to take off, Jesse pulled these cards from The Creative Blood Experience question deck.
Jesse’s on a mission to make grappling an Olympic sport and has launched The Grappling Network which is now available to watch wherever you are - P.s. no, we didn’t know what grappling was either and so glad we weren’t afraid to ask!
This episode was created in partnership with the brilliant humans here Creative Blood and Scenery Studios.
