Developer • Designer • Adventurer • Coffee Connoisseur
Hello! I’m a professional freelance frontend developer and designer who has experience with websites, mobile apps, branding, and graphics. But I don’t just build products, I create solutions for companies. I dive deep into my client’s goals, needs, and wants, and my work revolves around these in order to help the overall success of their business.
I’m an artist at heart with a logical mind, so I work on projects with both my creativity and problem solving mindset. This is where my “half developer – half designer” name comes from 🙂
When I’m not working I like drinking coffee at local cafes, hanging out with my dog, watching Netflix, and traveling the world.

What my clients have to say
“Jessie is amazing. I run a business with many different facets and I need freelancers who can take on a project, create timelines, work to deadlines and keep me informed of any bumps in the road – Jessie did all of that and more. She is a very smart, dedicated, hard-working person who not only kept my project on track but she kept me on track as well! She saved us a ton of money by making smart, time and money-saving decisions throughout the creation of our app. Again, I can’t recommend her enough.”
“I hired Jessie on a friend’s recommendation to design my online platform / blog The Traveler’s Mindset, which encourages Americans to travel abroad. She was fantastic to work with!! The project took almost exactly the amount of time she estimated, and when I wanted tweaks made to the final product she did them quickly and flawlessly. I’ve had unreliable web developers / designers in the past and Jessie was ANYTHING but that. Would happily use her services again in the future and I’ve already recommended her to entrepreneurs in my network — she is THAT great to work with. ”
“I hired Jessie to take on a very significant development project for Bold Betties and after seeing the quality of her delivery, I was absolutely certain that I want to work with her on an ongoing basis. Jessie is thorough, organized, dependable, responsive and delivers quality results. She leaves no rock unturned and her research on approaches and solutions is very comprehensive. She delivers quality functionality and is organized, speedy and very communicative about the status of the project and if there are impediments. I have never found Jessie to “over promise”. If she does not believe that something can be done or is a good idea, she is very clear about that but also offers alternatives so that the project can move forward. I am thoroughly enjoying working with Jessie and appreciate her helpfulness, speed and quality of work! Thank you Jessie!”
“When our business made the decision to commit to a much needed website re-design, it felt like an ominous task. Little did we know the simple and amazing answer was two little words; Jessie Albarian. Jessie’s talent not only delivered a high quality finished product, but a fun, energizing experience throughout the entire process. Our project included untangling an ugly back-end mess and taming it into a beautifully documented, streamlined and easily managed site. Next, we needed a fresh new look and branding for multiple audiences, and seamless integration with our client portal. Jessie used strong organizational and communication skills throughout the project, which made it ridiculously easy for us to communicate thoughts and ideas; ultimately seeing them materialize almost before our sentences were finished. Technical, creative, communicative, persistent, thorough, prompt, positive and relentlessly energetic. Highly recommend Jessie!”
“Working with Jessie on our interactive app prototype was an absolute pleasure. She set clear working guidelines, communicated clearly, listened to our feedback and added her own creative spin to the project. We recommend Jessie highly and look forward to working with her on future projects!”
I’d love to hear from you!
