Hi, I’m Jessica K. Murray!
This site is a work in progress and attempts to showcase some of my best work over the past 20 years or so (much of the early stuff was lost, so thank goodness for finding my past creations on Archive.org). I’m currently employed full time but available after business hours for side-projects that interest me.
I have been the lifelong companion to Boo my Goffins cockatoo since May 2000.
Check out my passion projects:
VintageReveries.com – My original vintage fashion and history blog with ecommerce (I still have over 1000 pieces of vintage clothing to sell since officially going out of business in 2016)
StLouisCovidMemorial.com – My attempt at a memorial to lives lost in St. Louis MO due to COVID-19. I updated it regularly, mostly with deaths I found by pouring over obituary websites and public information, between June 2020 and February 2021. I stopped, for now, because it was too depressing and I needed to focus on other things.
In 2015, I was testing a new video camera hidden behind a pumpkin that I was trying to get my birds to stand upon. Getting a bloody ear and no cute Halloween photos, I posted the clip of Arthur biting my ear to my brand new Youtube channel. When an agent from Junkin Media contacted me about licensing the clip, I figured that I was making zero on my new channel, so it’s not like I could make less money. A few months later my friends started calling me and I got a ton of hateful comments and emails, signs that this clip had gone viral. After that, it was shown widely on national television including Tosh.0, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Right This Minute.
