If you like traveling abroad, you’ll want Jesse by your side. The 22-year-old Woodbridge, Va., native and University of South Carolina graduate is always on the move, either for work as a part-time defense contractor or for fun. And he’s always eager to get a new stamp in his passport. Due to his travel schedule, he doesn’t have a regular bar to call his favorite hangout, but he’ll have plenty of time to find one when he moves to Columbia Heights next month. When he’s not grabbing a drink at Nellie’s or attending a house party, Jesse loves to cook, work out and do yoga.
What’s on your nightstand?
A big, beautiful book of architecture, a Playboy from March 1991 and an orchid.

Why the Playboy?
I was exploring an antique shop, found some Playboys, and thought it would be cool to have an issue from the month and year that I was born.
So are you a Pisces or an Aries?
I’m a Pisces.
That’s supposed to make you adaptable.
Yeah, I am. I’m super adaptable. That’s actually something I like about myself.
What’s in your nightstand drawer?
A lot of dust.
Where do you keep the condoms and lube?
In convenient spots all around the house.
What are your television favorites?
I usually don’t watch TV, but I just finished watching Orange Is the New Black, and now I’m dying to see the new season. I also watch a lot of National Geographic documentaries.
