Jesse J. Anderson

ADHD advocate, writer, speaker, maker of things.

👋 Hey, I'm Jesse, and I make things on the internet, mostly to help people learn more about ADHD.

I create videos on YouTube and host a couple of podcasts: ADHD Nerds and The Weekly Build.

I also write a weekly newsletter, Extra Focus, where I share thoughts and strategies on ADHD with over 35,000 readers. You can join for free to get weekly ADHD tips in a quick, easy-to-read email.

Oh yeah, and I'm writing a book called Refocus: A Practical Guide to Adult ADHD. You can check out my Projects page to see what else I'm working on.
