Jes Kalled

Hailing originally from a small town in New Hampshire, USA, Jes often finds herself getting lost in big cities (in the best way). In addition to taking long walks through concrete jungles, and starting a somewhat low key mismatched sock rebellion, Jes can be found at her computer in the wee hours of the morning editing her podcast, Aliens and Moonbeams, illustrating, writing, and making movies. Jes has big dreams, and she fully intends on making them come true.
