Jesse Dudan has lived in the California Gold Country for most of his life. Reared by two loving hippies, Jesse developed a reverent appreciation for nature and the earth. Following high school, Jesse packed his bags and headed down to the University of California, Santa Barbara. Truth be told, Jesse communed with nature less and partied more. But thankfully, Jesse did indeed graduate, garnering a degree in Art Studio. To complete his good fortune, Jesse found the love of his life and now wife, Sarah, a precious needle in a haystack. Salt water was great, but fresh water was a necessity, so Jesse and Sarah packed up and moved back to the mountains to forge their lives together.
Soon after, along came Bart Stephens, another old school buddy and kindred spirit – and Photogenetik was born. Jesse has been living in Jamestown, California for the past two years, working, creating, snowboarding, hiking and extracting the best out of life. His artistic mediums of choice include photography, graphic design, web design, and an occasional clay disaster.
