Jess Davis


Brooklyn, NY

My name is Jess Davis. I’ve been called an activist, multi-platform storyteller, creative director, artist, and thought leader for the digital wellbeing movement. But if you ask me I’m an expert on making meaningful connections through creativity in the screened-in world. I write A Very Folk Rebellion, a newsletter for humans navigating the confusing crosshairs of humans, real life, and the new modern world. Part philosophy. Part journalism. Part nostalgia. Zero parts interviewing self-congratulatory megalomaniac tech moguls. I’m also the Founder of Folk Rebellion, proud mama to an eight year old boy named Hays, giant Poofandland owner (Or Newfypoo, Noodle, Newfy-Doodle, GAH they’re all ridiculous to say out loud!), partner to a magnificent Irishman named Mikey, Brooklynite, luddite, country mouse and city rat equally. 100% over it all.
