Meet Jessie Biancci

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessie Biancci.

Jessie, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was born in the city capital of entertainment of the world, Los Angeles. But to be precise in Santa Monica, CA. The perfect place for my acting career. A bit of me is I grew up in foster care so I was used to transitional housing. Good thing to know is celebrities were interactive with kids that are in foster care, all boy schools and orphanages. I am use to this scenery. My first acting job was when I was two years old in a British family Disney style TV series called “Spaghetti Nose” for seven months. My character was the son of a British family, where my father owned a spaghetti factory and I loved my spaghetti. I also had experienced as a child voice overs for animation tv. I was then focused on my schooling for many years until I was a teenager. I could have gone the direction of being a pro athlete as I was advanced in sports such as football, basketball, baseball and being the ultimate wrestler champ. I traveled a lot for playing sports in my teenage years.

I then worked in corporate atmospheres and I am also an accomplished chef. I have worked at many 5 stars restaurants, hotels, yachts and elite universities. I also had experienced along the way from childhood to an adult is modeling projects. Acting and Being a musician has been my main interest. But I also have an artistry side of being an accomplished photographer. I go by Sim Fotos. I always loved tigers, lions, a smilodon, cheetahs and of course cats. Smilodon was a nick name for me and from there sometimes was for short Sim.

Today my work has been published in many international and national magazines. One of the people who I have photographed a lot is Mariela I’V for publications. She also owns her own production where I have been the actor for her projects such as her newest short film “Dolce Disposizione”, an Italian comedy film. I have also had experience in wide range of styles from commercials, music videos and films that are for a good cause. As for my musician side this has been fun, I have made one song that is titled “Outer Space With This”. For the future, I continue to plan on my acting career and get into producing. TV is my main interest.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It has been a smooth road to the most part. Since I grew up in foster care group homes it’s a different lifestyle everything is provided for us such as allowance, food, clothing and housing until being legal as an adult. Living in Los Angeles, I always have had a role in the entertainment. I have been in many different roles that I did for fun at the time and didn’t care the credit. I have also DJ’d but it was something I did for the experience. I live in the Hollywood lifestyle. Attending parties in the hills, red carpet events and movie screenings.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I specialize in acting. But as most of us, we have our side creative outlet and enjoyable hobbies. My creative outlet is Photography and as for a hobby is being a chef. It’s always that way when you are just doing something for fun or that you have no stress on then you succeed in it most as I have in my Photography and being a chef. As for my acting, I am proud of where I am at with this being selective of my projects I work with. What sets me apart from others is I succeed in what I do. Also growing up in foster care, people may wonder how do I know what my ethnicity is, well I have done a DNA test and I am an Italian and Persian.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
My luck is good but we could always use more luck. I control my luck in my hard work.
