Hello world!
Introduction
Jesse Thomas is the CEO and founder of JESS3, a creative interactive agency specializing in data visualization, social strategy and visual storytelling. Lauded as one of the "Web's Hottest Designers" by Mashable, Thomas has been working toward owning his own agency since he was in his late teens. Obsessed while growing up with comic books, all things Disney and Pixar, MTV and video games, Thomas has built a company that produces the wonderment and magic he remains inspired by for vanguard clients that include Nike, NASA, Facebook, Google, Intel, Red Bull and Twitter. 

Thomas recently was named one of Washington's top 100 "Tech Titans" by Washingtonian magazine, and he has been profiled by Communication Arts, PSFK and Modern DC Business Magazine for his unconventional thinking, creative genius and expansive vision for his company – to fuse "Silicon Valley with Madison Avenue." With a background in information design and user experience, Thomas was one of the first agency principals in the world to choose data visualization as a central focus, which led to breakthrough projects for C-SPAN and PepsiCo during the 2008 elections. Since then, he has contributed social-design-driven methods to the recent redesigns of Samsung.com and Nike.com, while also expanding his team to execute large-scale installations for clients that include Intel, American Express and Samsung and multimedia videos for clients such as Gmail and ESPN that include stop-motion animation, papercraft and puppeteering.

Thomas is the executive creative director and ideator behind the comic book “The Zen of Steve Jobs” – a co-production between Forbes and JESS3 – due out later this year. A dual citizen of New Zealand and the United States, he also oversees JESS3's self-funded labs division, which prototypes and launches its own products, and writes regularly for Forbes.

A very special coffee shop. Nothing else like it in DC. Quality of product, unique ambiance and understated originality make this place the best coffee shop in the entire DC area. I get the impression that blagden alley will be even better in years to come.

A really nice family run italian sandwich shop. You feel like you are in a small town while waiting with the locals for your order to be made. The bread is a soft baguette that is reminiscent of the baguette you would find at a grocery store.. but somehow it works! Its a 3 star place, that has incredible ambiance/it's family owned. The owners daughter took my order, and the owner himself handed me my sandwich. I love that.

Really impressed. Definitely the best pretzel in dc, bonus points for adorable ambiance. It's a small spot o a residential street in capital hill across the street from a school baseball field. Outdoor seating amongst flowers and plants. Service is from a window, menu is straight forward. The drinks are nice too!

what a great fast casual concept. you pick from steamed veggie rice bowls, and you can also get a tomato sandwich that looks like a hamburger. I was very impressed. Run, don't walk to beefsteak. Bravo Jose!

I grew up eating peruvian chicken at El Pollo Rico's other locations. I fell in love with fried yucca as a substitute for potato french fries. This location doesn't serve Yucca, they serve french fries they buy frozen in a big bag.. I asked the manager about the Yucca and she said they don't have a reliable vendor to sell them the yucca needed for this location. The coleslaw isn't homemade.. But despite that I still love them, and the chicken is the real deal. Love that yellow sauce!
