Who is Jonathan?
Jonathan grew up as a producer, entertainer, craftsman, and entrepreneur. He has performed on-stage, in site-specific productions, films, dance-theatre, new media art, has modeled, and worked as a director, producer, and writer for stage and screen alike.
Born and raised a Jersey boy, Jonathan's parents engaged and supported his passion for the theatre, film, and the arts since he was first exposed to all of it at the age of six. At the young age of six, Jonathan saw the film Jurassic Park for the first time, inducing him with the filmmaking bug.
He was put into a film training program at the age of 12 and began acting classes. He later found inspiration via Shia LaBeouf in his role as Kale in Disturbia. Jonathan also studied acting to better understand how to function as a director on a film set.
After all the training, hands-on experiences, and adventures over the years, he still thrives to build the connection between writer, producer, actor and audience that can shift the dynamics of thoughts and commitment to growth and understanding of the self and the human experience.
He is incredibly passionate about creating content online, and he has been doing so since YouTube was first launched in 2005.
He received his Bachelor of Theatre Arts from the University of Michigan, with a focus in acting. During his time at the University of Michigan Jonathan produced, directed, and wrote a number of productions, as well as worked as a assistant stage manager, understudy property master, lighting technician, painter, and media technologist.
Jonathan mainly travels for freelance work these days. He is committed to creating the best content he can with the people he collaborates with.
Jonathan is also passionate about fitness and healthy living. He is certified through NASM as a CPT, FNS, WFS, WLS, & YES. He is also CPR, AED, & EMT certified.
With a myriad of skills and experiences under his belt, Jonathan is qualified and able to perform a large set of jobs while multitasking.
