Hello and welcome! I'm Jess, and I'm glad you're here.

Launched in 2009 as a way to update far-flung family, Roy Joy has become a community for creatives, mamas, makers, and dreamers.

As a multi-passionate creative entrepreneur I have a hand in many pots, some of which include 
photography, graphic + web design, creative consulting, art direction, and book writing. Want to work together? Send me an email

I am a curious home cook who's style is intuitive and improvisational, which works...most of the time. Until it really doesn't. If you're into delicious food, take a look at my collection of recipes.

Penelope and Felix are my two kiddos, and they are the most wondrous creatures on the planet. These wondrous creatures have taught me stone-cold humility, the value of Daniel Tiger, and are constantly reminding me that life can be challenging and beautiful at the same time

I am a partner to the renaissance man with a plan, my musicologist husband Matthew. He brings a lot to the table, but his undying love of languages, good food, reading Harry Potter aloud, and his family makes him the BEST. 

I am a collaborative people-helper who loves watching others grow, succeed, and find joy in their lives. When we are all a bit happier, healthier, and kinder, the world is literally a better place. 

Call me crazy, but I'm a hardcore futuristic optimist who is constantly looking ahead. I'm a big fan of vision casting, brainstorming, dreaming, and collaging. (I know we have Pinterest now, but never ever underestimate the power of collaging.) As Marie Forleo says - everything is figureoutable

Again, welcome! I would love to hear from you - reach out and we'll connect. 

All love, 

. . . . .
