About Me

I'm a director/producer, period re-enactor, actor, model and dancer (tap under Beryl Davis, jazz and period ballroom). I grew up on the San Francisco Peninsula, and I'm a recent graduate with a degree in Radio/Television; emphasis in production and animation from SFSU. My goals are to become a host of a program, or to act in television or film. I have an extensive wardrope full of authentic period clothing, and accoutrements, dating back to the 1830s to the 1940s. I also do renaissance, and 1760s. Best way to contact me is by email. jwjenkins@sbcglobal.net
Thank you for your time, and consideration.


I was recently hired/cast by Matte World Design for the David Fincher film staring Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald book 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons'. Also, I was an extra in the Coquette Productions David Arquette movie staring Thomas Jane and Elizabeth Berkley titled 'The Butler's In Love'; which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

I was an intern for Beyond Production's MythBusters that is aired on Discovery Channel.
I have a mini-magazine video project that won this year's AEGIS award competition for best student work to which I was the director/producer/and assistant editor. I was also able to pass it onto Ken Burns; hoping for feedback.

I've worked with the city of San Francisco on the World Reknown 60th Anniversary of the U.N. Treaty signing on Nob Hill in June of 2005, as well as on the 1906 Earthquake Centennial with a performance at Pier 48 as "Jenkins and Archer the Famous Melody Rascals," and the drive-in with the survivors in the 1906 Locomobile.

I'm the 2004 winner of the best most authentic Victorian costume at the Great San Francisco Dickens Fair, to which I play Sir John Everett Millais (Pre-Raphaelite painter). And, I won the best dressed male at the Art Deco's Gatsby Picnic 2006; I wore 1920s.

I've had many theater roles: Oklahoma-Slim, Music Man, Carousel, Brigadoon, My Fair Lady, Mame, Anything Goes, "Of Thee I Sing," directed by Simon Levy of Beach Blanket Babylon, the show was performed at Stern Grove for the 1984 Democratic Convention for Mondale, Ferraro, and Jesse Jackson; +10,000 in attendance).
